On Behalf of Nature is a plea for ecological awareness with no lectures, just beauty and empathy. And because she always revises the music from a dramatic piece before creating an album, Nature sounds purposeful and complete throughout its hourlong running time. Aside from her vocal troupe, the instrumental forces include ace percussionist John Hollenbeck, harpist Laura Sherman, and the reed-instrument player Bohdan Hilash. One current singer in Monk’s group, Allison Sniffin, also doubles on piano, violin and French horn. With a spare introductory theme voiced on a Burmese piccolo, opening track Dark/Light 1 evokes a pre-dawn zone of austere beauty

6. Duet with Shifting Ground.
