Known comments by Bruce Cockburn about this song, by date:

  • Spring 1993

    James Jensen: "In The Falling Dark" has a couple of instrumental pieces; "Giftbearer" sounds like your just playing rhythm while the horn is taking the lead.

    BC: Well, actually through all the improvised part I was playing the rhythm but (demonstrating the piece on his dobro) I was also playing the lead on top of this pattern although the horn tends to hide the guitar part.
    -- from an Interview by James Jensen at Sunset Sound, Los Angeles, circa Spring 1993.
