“House Upon the Hill”

A Regina composer, Stewart Wilkinson, has set one of David’s poems to music, and Wascana Voices recorded the choral composition. It’s a moving piece, and I know David would be honoured that Stewart used the poem in this way.

David’s writing career actually began with poetry; his first publications were poems in Canadian Boy magazine in the 1950s. He loved reading poetry all his life. “House Upon the Hill” was written about a house he saw as he travelled through Nova Scotia one summer.
