Eatock is a composer, critic, and musicologist. The six works recorded on this disc were composed over the last quarter-century, which he has spent living in Toronto. This is intimate music, a mixture of vocal and instrumental works scored for one to four musicians. The pieces reflect Eatock's musical influences. Often, there is a historical aspect to his music, with stylistic ideas from past eras incorporated into his works. And there are also literary influences: Williams Blake, Walt Whitman and Alfred Tennyson are all represented on this disc.
