Rideau Reflections is a musical tribute to the Rideau Waterway which was designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2007. The Rideau Canal links Ottawa, Ontario to Kingston, Ontario and was opened in 1832 as a military supply route to bypass the St. Lawrence River. The 20 arrangements of popular melodies on this CD trace the history of the Rideau Canal and reflect the moods of the river and some of the events which take place on the waterway today. Produced as a commemorative CD the liner notes contain a short history of the Rideau Canal and explain how each melody relates to the waterway or its history.
Rideau Reflections contains 20 arrangements with a total playing time of over 60 minutes and is a fundraising project with all proceeds from the sale of the CD going to support the Rideau Seniors’ Centre.
