The “Lullaby” (2017) is a song scored for a mixed choir, set to an excerpt from The Princess, one of Alfred Lord Tennyson’s poems, published in 1847. It is a children’s song, sung by a mother to a baby to calm him down. I chose this poem because of it’s beautiful, poetic and calming setting of the blowing wind, the sea and the sails, as well as a simple language that can be easily understood by a child.
Sweet and low, sweet and low, Sleep and rest, sleep and rest,
Wind of the western sea, Father will come to thee soon;
Low, low, breathe and blow, Rest, rest, on mother's breast,
Wind of the western sea! Father will come to thee soon;
Over the rolling waters go, Father will come to his babe in the nest,
Come from the dying moon, and blow, Silver sails all out of the west
Blow him again to me; Under the silver moon:
While my little one, while my pretty one, sleeps. Sleep, my little one, sleep, my pretty one, sleep.
