Comments

There are lullabies born from a poem (Dalton/Shatzer/Ueno), a story (Éon), and from a musical (Turner). There is Adam and Eve’s first lullaby (Job), one written during a lecture (McDonald), and another was inspired by a leaky roof (Feist). Some soothe us steadily (Schuttenhelm), while we drift between worlds as our heads nod off (Lubkowski/Green). A couple acknowledge the struggles of our time (Schreiner/Trester), and others offer touches of love and hope (Feist/Stolz). Some lullabies reflect humanity, others testify to a memory and affirmation of a time passed by, while a gorgeous 12-tone lullaby (Mashak) sits quietly to be discovered.

Though they lean tonal, the compositional languages vary greatly. Except for a few pieces, the tuning remains mostly standard, but one does asks that you tune on the fly. There are string pulls and some technical challenges, but don’t worry, harmonics of all types abound. My hope is that you will create your own relationships with the music, so I have not added fingerings. Those that do include fingerings or string directions are by the composer.
