Cantata Singers of Ottawa commissioned Water Canticle for a 2000 fundraising concert on behalf of WaterCan, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping poor communities in developing countries build sustainable water supply and sanitation services. Margaret Trudeau, mother of Canada’s 23rd Prime Minister, is the long serving honorary president of WaterCan. This piece was dedicated to her because the text was based on comments she made during an interview regarding the healing nature of water in her own life.
