Amazon Review
Barbara Cass-Beggs has a two-fold purpose in bringing together the folk songs in this sea-to-sea collection: to keep them alive and to help Canadian children become more aware of their heritage. Interspersed among the 32 songs is an easy-flowing commentary on the music and the people who made that music: the loggers, the voyageurs, the coureurs-de-bois, the fishermen, the sailors. Suggestions are given for musical instruments best suited to particular songs and ideas for games. Many of the songs have both English and French words, some have Indian and Eskimo words as well. Words and music. Delightfully illustrated. Barbara Cass-Beggs is a graduate of the Royal Schools of Music, London and served as vice-president of the Canadian Folk Music Society.
