With its long-established cultural and linguistic diversity, Canada is an unusually rich ethnomusicological source. In this set of concert transcriptions of four of the country’s traditional songs, John Beckwith chose “The Jolly Raftsman, O” from Ontario, the Doukhobor song “So skuki i pechali” from Alberta, the Mennonite song “Müde kehrt ein Wanderer zurück” from Manitoba and “La Danse” from Quebec.
