Mary’s Lullaby (1998)
SSAA, optional soloists, and piano
An attractive and moving setting of a refreshingly thought provoking 17th-century carol text. The choral lines are easy, clothing the words with great sensitivity and supported by a simple and atmospheric piano accompaniment.
‘What captures my interest most of all is the wonderful melody with which the piece opens. Modal in character, simple in line and shape, this adds a true simplicity that colours the music so superbly. . – Music Teacher
‘A gently flowing lullaby of almost hypnotic beauty at times…strongly recommended’ – Richard Graves, Choir and Organ
