When Music Sounds

Released in 2000, WHEN MUSIC SOUNDS takes the listener on a journey of cultural diversity through a repertoire of 23 songs for women’s voices. We begin at home with works by prominent Canadian composers Ruth Watson Henderson, Eleanor Daley, Ramona Leungen, and David MacIntyre, and then travel musically to five other nations.
