Conductor: Donald Patriquin
Work: Donald Patriquin : World Music Suite Two (Canadian Mosaic)
Pianist: Anne-Marie Denoncourt

Donald Patriquin, a prominent Canadian composer and a friend of CAMMAC, will conduct his “World Music Suite Two” (formerly “Canadian Mosaic”), as well as a new work, “Island Spinning Song.”

It will be a special afternoon and an honour to have such an exceptional composer/conductor, so please do come and enjoy a unique CAMMAC reading.

The arrangement was commissioned by Erica Phare and Patricia Abbott on behalf of the Montreal English School Board Chorale. It was premiered at the Lake MacDonald Music Centre in 2003, as the grand finale of CAMMAC’s 50th season, directed by Patricia Abbott, with Anne-Marie Denoncourt at the piano.

World Music Suite Two – published by A Tempo and distributed by The Leading Note, Ottawa  – is “A suite representing the many cultures comprising the  Canadian mosaic.” Like most of Donald’s song arrangements, most movements are available in SATB, SSA and TTBB.   

Movements include:
• Tsimshian welcome chant (First nations, British Columbia)
• Sakura (Japan)
• Hevenu shalom a’leychem (Israel)
• Inuit weather chant (Northern Canada)
• Flower drum song (China)
• On the mountain (Ukraine)
• Water come to me eye (Jamaica)
• I’ll go see my love (Ontario – England)
• C’est l’aviron (Québec – France) (Published by Cypress Choral Music)

Donald Patriquin is a Quebec educator, composer, organist, and choral conductor known internationally for choral and instrumental arrangements of folk music.
