"The ultimate gift book for music lovers, True North: the Canadian songbook is a 360-degree view of Canada's iconic songs and majestic landscape, celebrating the sesquicentennial. Produced and curated by classical crossover recording artist Eleanor McCain and renowned photographer V. Tony Hauser, this book grew from McCain's visionary idea to create new arrangements of 33 Canadian songs, recording them onsite with ten Canadian orchestras from Newfoundland to British Columbia. This hardcover edition comprises English and French text, a collection of Canadian song lyrics complemented by full-colour landscape photography by prominent Canadian photographers, exclusive commentary from Canadian songwriters and artists, and an enclosed double CD set, which is McCain's sixth album, produced by award-winning composer Don Breithaupt, highlighting guest artists of national and international repute."--Provided by publisher.
