O Canada - A Prelude and Anthem

A breathtaking new release from Revv52 of Calgary, Alberta recorded and performed virtually to celebrate Canada Day 2020. The opening Prelude is an original composition beginning with the Cree word 'Mâmawi' - meaning "All together". The orchestral arrangement by Artistic Director John Morgan sets the stage for the beautiful poetry about Canada's journey, potential, and hopes for the future from Governor General award-winner Richard Harrison. I love unfinished things, ​the bookmark set between closed pages, ​​the field that waits for seed, Canada ​​​​​​is a place like that, a history incomplete, ​a traveler turning around and wondering ​​​​at the distance gone, the distance yet to go. What was there, Canada? ​What is ever there on a country’s road, but times when we were glorious, ​​and times of things no one should have done? Our anthem understands: ​words of pride with notes of mourning, and the music of resolve to finish ​​​​and turn towards the road ahead. Here is a place to say, We go on, ​not as before, and so keep faith with the best of what we are. O, Canada, it is a complex love ​​that keeps us together, ​​​​and all the more true love for that. Revv52's new arrangement of O Canada includes Cree Nation and Revv52 member Akina, French Canadian solo recording artist Renelle Ray, and Canadian R&B solo recording artist Justine Tyrell. All are accompanied by Revv52, Canada’s Vocal Energy who recorded from their homes virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Revv52's tribute on Canada's birthday in 2020 seeks to stir the hearts of Canadians with haunting text, indigenous language and an original arrangement and performance of our magnificent anthem.
