Patrice Larkin (Feat. Vocal by Rebecca Barnard)

A Mother Weeps

from the Your Star album.

“I have been playing piano since the age of 4, attended the Conservatorium Of Music, Melbourne University, at age 18 and taught piano for several years in my 30s.

The past 13 years I have owned and worked a country General Store/ Post Office and, until 9 years ago, hadn’t played for many years. It was then that I lost my only child, Gabby. She died, at the age of 16, from an extremely rare cancer. Since then I suddenly started writing songs and found the piano a way of releasing my grief.

The very 1st song I wrote after losing Gabby was A MOTHER WEEPS. It took about 6 weeks, writing a few lines each week. After that all the other songs I wrote just flowed with a variety of different songs as the years passed.

The song A MOTHER WEEPS, is both a DVD and CD. We filmed the recording of it in the studio by REBECCA BARNARD and the musicians (MODELS SUPER ORCHESTRA), 5 of which were Aria Hall Of Fame Members. It is available to purchase through my website, by email or by calling 03 57240701”.
