Seal Lullaby composed by Paul Carey. For SA choir and piano. Janet Galvan Roots & Wings Series. Concert. Octavo. Published by Roger Dean Publishing (LO.15-2328R).
Seal Lullaby is a setting of a poem from Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book. Perfect for children's choirs as well as older treble choirs, the gentle undulations in the piano part suggest the watery world in which the mother seal and her wee flippering live. The mother seal's pentatonic choral melody, sweet and lovely yet with a hint of melancholy, makes this lullaby memorable.
