featuring the Cypress Studio Singers
Yes, this is the chant you used to sing around the campfire! Stephen Smith has created a whimsical yet beautiful arrangement which incorporates canons, ostinatos, and even a few musical quotations, and which has a featured role for a quartet of soloists.

LYRICS

Land of the silver birch,
home of the beaver,
Where still the mighty moose wanders at will
Blue lake and rocky shore
I will return once more.
b’m di-di ah da oh

O Canada, our home and natice land
The lake lay blue below the hill.

My heart grows sick for you
here in the lowland
I will return to you, hills of the north
Blue lake and rocky shore
I will return once more.
b’m di-di ah da oh
