Rocking Song Op. 55 was inspired by a project that I assigned to my first year composition students: compose a wordless, unaccompanied lullaby for a single voice. As I thought about how I’d approach that challenge, I remembered a short lilting figure my grandmother would hum to me while rocking me as a very small child. I started with that three note figure and wrote my own lullaby to share with my students.
