I originally wrote this piece for 8-part flute choir and it is dedicated to the Academy Flute Choir, Victoria. Someone suggested that it would make a good brass band piece, so here is the expanded version.

The four movements represent my thoughts about Canada and its people.

1. March of the Frontiersmen: Canada is a young nation and I imagined it beginning its journey towards nation status as a child growing up and learning how to defend itself through play. The image of Canadian boys playing soldiers and marching is important in this movement.

2. The Great White Cold: I imagined the bitter freezing cold and icy beauty of Canadian winters (not that I have ever experienced such) and I used some slightly unusual techniques to create the impression of a cold wind blowing across the arctic scenery.

3. Campfire Songs: I had this vision of the great outdoors with Canadian families going camping in the mountainous regions sitting round their campfire at night and singing songs. I had no idea at the time whether Canadians were campfire songsters or what kinds of songs they might choose, so I selected a number of ’folk’ songs from the "Great Canadian Tune Book" and incorporated them into this movement.

4. The New Found Land: This movement moves to Canada’s eastern seaboard and I imagined new emigrants to the country arriving at a busy harbour and seeing all the hustle and bustle of a lively community and sea port. With some difficulty the debarkees find their land legs but then become absorbed in the lively new world they have moved to.
