Selections, mainly by Canadian (Ann Southam’s “Glass Houses”) and American composers – along with Messiaen and Boulez from France, England’s Gavin Bryars, and Japan’s Toru Takemitsu and Masamitsu Takahashi – range from the spiritual and sacred to blues, boogies and jazz– from Alexina Louie’s Star-filled Night to a swinging Suite by William Westcott.

Produced by David Jaeger, whose Quivi Sospiri is also featured, the CD is named for the title track, 6 Ings by American composer Henry Cowell (1897-1965). The Ings, composed in 1917, are evocative musical portrayals of Floating, Frisking, Fleeting, Scooting, Wafting and Seething.
