In this first recording exclusively devoted to the songs of Canadian composer John Greer, the composer / pianist is joined in performance by world-class singers soprano Tracy Dahl, baritone Kevin McMillan and mezzo-soprano Delores Ziegler, offering definitive interpretations of works that are already beloved by North American recital audiences. SING ME AT MIDNIGHT brings together four song cycles for voice and piano: The House of Tomorrow (2012); The Red Red Heart (1993); Sing Me At Midnight (1993) and A Sarah Binks Songbook (1989).

Greer’s compositions have been heard extensively across North America and worldwide in concert and recital. Most noted for his vocal works and art songs, Mr. Greer has earned a reputation as one of Canada’s most performed composers for the recital stage and has composed works for many of Canada’s elite singers including sopranos Tracy Dahl, Rosemarie Landry, Adrianne Pieczonka and Monica Whicher, baritone Kevin McMillan and mezzo-soprano Catherine Robbin.

Canadian Art Song Project’s mission is to build on the rich legacy of Canadian song. It engages composers, writers, and performers to share and celebrate their experiences through the creation of new music and provides opportunities for Canadian artists to program and advocate for the wealth of beauty in the existing song literature.
