Lullaby is taken from a larger work for string orchestra and percussion called Memorial to Silent Voices. The text sung by the alto soloist is from the well-known traditional English lullaby, “All Through the Night.” While the melody sung by the alto soloist is not the original, snatches of the traditional tune appear periodically, played by solo instruments. The simple melody and the gently rocking chordal accompaniment combine to form a peaceful and soothing lullaby. Lullaby is dedicated to my daughter Svana.
