“There are some people for whom the act of nurturing is innate. The work they do is often unheralded, acknowledgement of their effort the last thing on their mind. But nurturers carry pain, too. Their own burdens, anxieties and hardships often take a back seat to that nurturing impulse. This piece is a meditation on that idea; that some people, not without their own deep personal obstacles, can't help but live out the powerful instinct to hold those around them in a warm embrace of care.” ~Edward Fairlie Dur: 4:50 (Recorded by the Eltham High School Symphonic Band, directed by Rick Plummer, guest conductor Edward Fairlie).
