Sheet Music: Score
Lullaby : for string orchestra / Matthew Hindson.
by Matthew Hindson (2003)
On a hot December day on a property near Bathurst, New South
Wales, I imagined the aural image of a father crooning his
newborn baby to sleep with a lilting, pastoral melody. At the
time I was supposed to be well-entrenched into writing my Ph.D.
thesis, but the temptation to write a piece of music was just too
Lullaby, for strings, was the result. Lullaby is not a piece that aims to change the world, rather, a simple expression of quiet, personal times between people generations apart.
I am especially pleased that Lullaby will be premiered at the Vale of Glamorgan Festival as I imagine the melody may suit the landscape. Matthew Hindson, 2003
