Gavin Bryars has returned once again to the poetry of George Bruce and the Five Songs from Northern Seas are dedicated to his memory in his centenary year. Bryars describes the five evocative poems:

"They focus on universal qualities - of man's relationship to a harsh environment, to images of coastal life and of the sea, to that resilience and independence of spirit that Glenn Gould identified in "The Idea of North" and which I admire unreservedly - an acceptance, and even relishing, of the concept of solitude as something positive."
