Notes and Editorial Reviews

Fanfare is a tribute to the renowned Canadian composer Louis Applebaum who died in April 2000. It features - of course! - the famous Stratford fanfares. There are also new arrangements by Glenn Morley of Lou's most beautiful songs and music - composed over his more-than-forty-year association with the Stratford Festival. This music for soloists, orchestra and choir was arranged, conducted and produced by Glenn Morley. The music was recorded on July 5 and 6, 2000 at the Toronto Centre for the Arts.
With: Richard Margison, tenor, Christopher Plummer, The Elmer Iseler Singers and: Craig Ashton, Juan Chioran, Colm Feore, Barbara Fulton, Richard Monette, and Steve Ross from The Stratford Festival Company
