This work is a compressed arrangement of the composer's 45 minute 'lullaby' for the same ensemble. It is a 'white-note' piece; harmonically static and meditative in nature, yet quietly emotional with its tonal centre often gravitating to B. The addition of a text by Chrissie Parrott, spelled out in a whisper by an actor or vocalist increases the sense of intimacy already latent in the music.
Instrumentation: 2 pianos, 2 violins, 2 violas, 2 cellos, 2 double basses.
Duration: 13 min.
Difficulty: Advanced — very long sustained notes for strings.
Commission note: Commissioned by Link Dance Co.
