"Donald Patriquin's arrangements of folksongs, particularly French Canadian folksongs, are my favorite. He understands not only the texts of the song but also the subtext and the real emotion in this music. Donald is a champion of word painting in his arrangements.  The vocal and instrumental writing always reflects the text and the overall atmosphere of every line and every verse. It is always a joy for singer, conductor and audience when we perform his music. If you want to sing French Canadian folksongs, you will be hardpressed to find better arrangements."

Robert Filion, Conductor
