O Canada - John Burge

John Burge

Categories: Anthem - O Canada

Level: Advanced/Diploma (Grade 10, ARCT and up)

This arrangement of “O Canada” was first published in John Burge’s collection of solo piano pieces titled, Piano Reflections. The impetus to write down the arrangement came in 2015, when Adèle Barclay, a writer and former first-year harmony student of Burge’s, happened to mention Burge’s solo piano arrangement of “O Canada” in a Literary Review of Canada book critique. Indeed, the book that she was reviewing at the time was a biography of Calixa Lavallée, the composer of “O Canada”. As this arrangement had often changed character over the years due to its improvisational underpinnings, it seemed an ideal time to finalize the notes for the arrangement. This arrangement is not available in an individual hard copy edition and only a pdf of the arrangement can be purchased online. Please note that if a hard copy is desired, please purchase the complete Piano Reflections collection(JBComps-004).

O Canada - Martha Hill Duncan

Martha Hill Duncan

Categories: Anthem - O Canada

Level: Early Advanced/Advanced (Gr 8 - 9)

Since Canada welcomed me as an immigrant so many years ago, I wanted my version of its anthem to include varied stylistic moods, rhythms and harmonic colour as well. Starting with a lush introduction in C Major, the melody of this Level 8-9 arrangement makes its way into both hands ending with a downward reflective fade away and finishes with a glorious and triumphant A Major final chord flourish. My favourite and the most challenging section is the climactic chordal bell ringing with grand movements across the keyboard in both hands. I also love the occasional touch of "gospel" articulation in the cadences as well as the quartal descending chords. Enjoy! 2019 Martha Hill Duncan
