With its long-established cultural and linguistic diversity, Canada is an unusually rich ethnomusicological source. In this set of concert transcriptions of five of the country’s traditional songs, John Beckwith chose the Gaelic “Tighinn do America” from Cape Breton, the Miramichi ballad “Peter Emberley”, the Cariboo Gold Rush song “Young Man from Canada”, the Hungarian “De szeretnék hajnal csillag lenni” from Saskatchewan and “Le Roulier” from Quebec.
