Hall, Alex: Lullaby for Matthew

Unison and piano

Suitable to be sung as an Evensong anthem, this is a very simple and practical setting for keyboard and voice – which might be a solo soprano or treble, or unison – of a Victorian children’s hymn that can still be found in numerous contemporary collections. Its flowing, unforced melody is an ideal counterpart to Sabine Baring-Gould’s words which, like the poems of Robert Louis Stevenson’s A Child’s Garden of Verses, owe their enduring appeal to the sincere expression of a youthful innocence that rings no less true to the sensibility of adults. The Lullaby was written to celebrate the birth of the composer’s godson, at the request of his grandparents.
