O' Canada: A History in Song

O' Canada: A History in Song

Chants of the Inuit, ballads of French settlers, battle tunes of the British, and songs of Canadian self-rule: singer Alan Mills combines all four to present a rich tapestry of Canadian history in music. Extensive liner notes with full lyrics accompany this collection, which comprises the first half of Folkways FW03001, Canada’s Story in Song.
