Performed by Westmount Charter School's Senior Orchestra in June 2010. A simpler version of this piece was composed in 1996 for the Broadcast Filler Service to accompany a video of this waterfall.

From Wikipedia: Takakkaw Falls is a waterfall located in Yoho National Park, near Field, British Columbia. Its highest point is 384 m (1260 feet) from its base, making it the second-highest officially measured waterfall in western Canada, after Della Falls on Vancouver Island. However its true "free-fall" is only 254 m.

"Takakkaw" is derived from the Cree word for "it is magnificent". The falls are fed by the Daly Glacier which is part of the Waputik Icefield.

Composer's note: The title also provides the primary rhythm of the piece. Bars 3 and 4 are the answer to the question "What's it called?" "Takakkaw. Takakkaw Falls."
