Program Notes

A Lullaby is a setting of George Macdonald’s beautiful poem The Christmas Child. The piece weaves a lush tapestry out of gentle melodies in each part.  The music is intended to soothe and calm, and evoke the inherent mystery of Macdonald’s words.

Text

The Christmas Child

“Little one, who straight hast come
Down the heavenly stair,
Tell us all about your home,
And the father there.”

“He is such a one as I,
Like as like can be.
Do his will, and, by and by,
Home and him you’ll see.”

— George MacDonald, (1824-1905)
