Commentaires : As with the other peoples they with whom they established relationships, the Moravian missionaries brought European music to the Inuit of Labrador. As a result the Inuit choirs they established were performing music from various 18th century composers, which eventually replaced their own musical tradition. Dr. Tom Gordon, director of the Memorial University of Newfoundland and Labrador's music school has described the 200 year old Moravian influence in the Labrador Inuit music tradition as being among the oldest music and music traditions in Canada. Music used in this tradition has never been of a printed origin. The sheet music, some dating back to the early 19th century and still in use, was all recorded by hand for use in the communities.
Fonctions : The recording was made for the 200th anniversary of the Moravian church in Labrador, 1771-1971.
