Ernest MacMillan The Canadian composer/conductor/writer Ernest MacMillan (1893-1973) seems to be almost unknown outside of his native country.
quote: The Canadian Encyclopedia
One of the major figures in Canada's musical history, MacMillan influenced virtually all facets of the country's musical life both by his precocity and brilliance as a performer and by his tireless activities on behalf of education. His service with the many national organizations that benefited from his help often occurred during their founding stages and was marked by shrewdness of vision and adherence to traditional artistic values. At the same time he achieved international recognition through his performances, publications, and wide travels.
His musical works and numerous arrangements feature elements of French-Canadian and Scottish folklore, as well as Amerindian music. The most important include: Fantasy on Scottish Melodies for orchestra, Two Sketches for Strings, Six Bergerettes du Bas-Canada for chamber ensemble, England and a Te Deum for choir, a String Quartet in C Minor and the opera Prince Charming.
