Description

SATB a cappella with bass divisi. Text by the composer. Music based on an Ecuadorian tune. Rich, fetching, minor-key sonority. Perfect for Christmas Eve.

Lullaby, Jesus, my darling, my dear one.
Sweet infant, you rest among flowers gently dancing.
While birds, small and dainty sing love songs entrancing.

See the drowsy shepherds from their sleep awaking,
Gifts of straw and blossoms to the manger taking.
High above the stable stars are brightly glowing,
Listen well and hear the whispered sounds of snowing.
On the straw so icy and too rough for sleeping,
Lies the lovely Mother, gently, softly weeping.
