Genevieve Lacey joins with harpist Marshall McGuire to explore the unique power of music to offer comfort and renewal.
"During this time of isolation, people the world round are yearning for shelter, both physical and spiritual. So I assembled a cast of people whose work I love, some of whom I'd never met and together, we set out to create a sense of shelter: a nest, woven with memories, heart, hope," Lacey says.
The exquisite album artwork, created by Gracia Haby and Louise Jennison, reflects the beauty and richness of the musical soundscapes presented on this album: sublime new music by Lou Bennett, Andrea Keller, Madeleine Flynn and Tim Humphrey, John Rodgers, Lachlan Skipworth, Bree van Reyk and Erkki Veltheim, side by side with musical treasures reaching back across six centuries.
