‘The Halcyon’ was Carleton University’s literary magazine. For the 1969 edition, a decision was made to scrap the printed magazine in favour of a full length LP instead. The album was conceptualized as an auditory version of the annual journal.

According to a November 22, 1968 edition of University’s newsletter, all poetry readings and songs on this album are the original works of the University’s students and faculty. In the same article, as well as a February 7, 1969 newsletter, 500 copies were slated to be pressed.

Although no song titles or credits were printed anywhere on the album jacket or labels, a review of the album in the March 14, 1969 University newsletter, states that there is an instrumental piece titled “Pastoral for Four Instruments”.
