Lullaby : for SATB choir and organ
by Keren Terpstra (2014)
Score SampleView a sample of the score of this work
This lovely carol (suitable for Advent/Christmas) embodies notions of kenosis, self-emptying, as described in Philippians 2. This is depicted multiple ways in the piece: through the downward descent of the organ pedal line, through the flowing mellifluous quavers, and the continuing downward trend of melodic lines.
Instrumentation: SATB choir, organ.
Duration: 3 min.
Dedication note: For Emily Cox and Canticum Chamber Choir
Commission note: Commissioned for the Lessons and Carols service at St Mary's Kangaroo Point, Brisbane, 14th December 2014
