Notes & Reviews:

Ice Age, the title track of this CD, is a work by Barbara Pentland in which the future of the earth is envisioned as a frozen, barren landscape due to human misuse of the environment. It is difficult for us to imagine the personal and professional obstacles that Pentland had to overcome in her career as a female composer. In this more welcoming time for diverse voices in music, the works collected on this CD illustrate how the example set by Pentland laid the path for young women composers across Canada. Due to their immense perseverance, works of Canadian women composers are now commissioned and performed throughout the world.
