Manuscript notes and track plans for The Quiet in the Land, 1975

Although Gould admitted no political or religious affiliations or commitments (he did not lend his name to petitions or declarations, for example) he tended towards pacifism and animal protection, and he abhorred violence. One of his last activities was to provide the music for the film production of the novel The Wars by his contemporary, Toronto-born writer Timothy Findley. The book describes the experiences of a young soldier from Ontario during World War I.
