Please help us find information about Douglas Russell. When Dr. Nickel took over Cypress he discovered that there was no information, photos or recordings pertaining to the composer – and a google search seems to come up empty. What a shame, because the choral writing is excellent. Help us to track him down.
Hey Now is Yole
by Douglas Russell
This madrigal-like song requires flexible singers and not a particularly large choir. The middle English words lend a feeling of ‘olde’ traditions.
A simple folk song from New Brunswick, given a delightful treatment by Douglas Russell. This is perfect for children’s choirs — an unusual Canadian folk song in French with a tune that children will love.
