  • Kanwike (Remembering) Nov 2013 - Jan 2014
    playing time: 5:12; file size: 4.9 MB

    The title Kanwike is Algonquin for "remembering." This piece represents, in a very small way, an attempt to say something about the aboriginal women and girls who have been murdered or gone missing. Our government steadfastlessly has refused to engage the issue in any meaningful way, insisting that it is a matter for police alone to deal with. Here's some background: a document prepared by The Native Women's Association of Canada.

    The closing melody, played on a tenor flute, is an Apache song called "In a Scared Manner I Live."
    The lyrics are:
    In a sacred manner I live.
    To the heavens I gazed.
    In a sacred manner I live.
    My horses are many.

Delian Society Contributions

The Delian Society, conceived by American composer Joseph Dillon Ford, was founded on 23 January 2004 as an international community of composers, performers, scholars, recording engineers, music publishers, and amateurs dedicated to the revitalization of the great tonal traditions in art music. The Society takes its name from the Greek Island of Delos, legendary birthplace of Apollo, god of music and light. (Wikipedia)

Each festival is centred around a given theme described on its dedicated web page.
