    Hi Graham,

    Very atmospheric and I especially like how the organ complements the piano.

    Great track. 🙂

    what a lucky nephew.
    i hope you play it for him in utero while he still has a little peace and quiet
    He will recognize it when he hits this cold cruel world.

    thanks for the lovely peace you brought to my morning
    i feel like knitting for my grandbabies instead of tidying up the kitchen

    please send the details i’ll be thinking of all of you.
    All my best and congratulation, uncle graham

    Hi Graham,

    What a lucky little boy we’ll have. He’s surrounded by so much love. The song is beautiful. I know someday it will mean a great deal to him, just as it does now to me.

    I’ve already played it many times for him. I think it’s just what we need.

    Dear Graham,
    What a lovely piece of music and what an exciting and beautiful way of welcoming a new member to the family. Just think, a piece of music written especially for him.

    Quiet wonder as we patiently wait
    For the day you break your silence
    And burst from the darkness
    To be cradled in your mother’s arms

    Quiet wonder as we anticipate
    That first moment when we embrace
    The blessing of your new life
    To be welcomed in our family circle

    Quiet wonder as our heartbeats quicken
    Listening for the call from long distance
    Telling us that you’ve arrived in our world
    So we can draw close to whisper
    “We’re so glad you’ve come!”

    Thank you for the inspiration, Graham

    Graham, The calm bewilderment evident in this piece is inspiring. It reminds me of how special the time was just before my children were born when I thought about what they would be like. This kind of calm is so easily shattered by the anxiety and noise of early childhood. I’m sure you all will enjoy returning to this piece as your nephew grows.

    What a beautiful composition. You have obvious talents as writer and artist.

    I hope you are performing publicly on a regular basis so that others can benefit from your gifts.

    I can hear him coming… wonderful prelude to a life.

  11. Graham English December 6, 2008 at 11:01 PM #

    He’s due today. Come on buddy. Can’t wait to meet you! 😀

    Baby Elliot Isaac English will truly love this!
    Congratulations Uncle Graham 😀

    What beautiful music you write. I always
    knew you were destined to become famous.
    Congratulations! I can put my grandson to sleep
    on this music.
    p.s. Will there be a todler sequel to “Quiet
    Wonder”? Todler’s like to bang on things.
    Just a little f.y.i. for when your nephew
    is older.
    Cherlyn Rangel (Vic Rangel’s wife).
    I am so glad Vic found your site.

    Thanks so much, Cherlyn! But I’m hardly famous, just kinda popular. 🙂 The rambunctious toddler music will be coming! Please tell the kids hello for me.
