Using the style of Canadian folk songs from the east coast and the story telling features of Newfoundland, A Fisherman s Tale is a piece about a trip out into the ocean. The piece opens with the solemn, chorale-like movement Farewell, as the fisherman leaves his home and family to begin the excursion, and closes with Return to Harbour, an up tempo movement representing the worker s successful homecoming.
