A lush and beautiful lullaby, perfect for Christmas Eve, as a quiet recital piece, or as a gentle postlude to an evening service.
"Commissioned by David Craighead in honor of Karen MacFarlane, this short piece is based on a simple melody first stated on a quiet reed stop. After a contrasting section in a new key, the opening melody returns for a quiet, unassuming finish. Phillips demonstrates his extraordinary compositional gift with a beautiful melody that is memorable for its vocal quality as well as its simplicity. Though the piece is subtitled "lullaby," this short work would fit into most any heneral use or situation in a worship service. Easy to moderate in difficulty (watch for some large stretches in the left hand part). Highly recommended." --Cross Accent, Fall 2001
"This lovely piece, written for David Craighead to honor Karen McFarlane, is conveniently printed so as to avoid any page turns. It is easy and beautiful, and should get wide use at a wide variety of occasions. I highly recommend it." --AAM Journal, December 2001
