These historic recordings of the great Canadian tenor, Jon Vickers, were made at the end of his career in the late 1980s. With the exception of Glick’s Two Landscapes, all of the repertoire was recorded at Vickers’ country home, Spruce Winds, in Southern Ontario.
 
Given that Vickers’ career was most notable for his dynamic opera roles and performances, it is perhaps a cherished rarity and valuable asset to both Vickers fans and our country’s musical heritage to have this recorded recital of art songs by some of Canada’s foremost composers.

 "Both for the music, which is all good to terrific, and for its significance as a rare example of Vickers in recital, this is a treasurable disc."

 
John Story - Fanfare

"The sound is close and natural... This is the only recording of any of these songs in the catalog."
 
Stalker - American Record Review
 

"Never primarily a recitalist, Vickers nevertheless relished challenges and... recorded one of the most valuable Canadian song anthologies on disc."

 
William Littler - The Toronto Star
