The Seal Lullaby by Eric Whitacre (1970-). For Choral (SATB). Eric Whitacre Choral. 12 pages. Published by Shadow Water Music (HL.8749149).
This loving and dreamlike work captures the undulating rhythm of a mother rocking her child to sleep. The text is a classic by Rudyard Kipling: “Oh! Hush thee, my baby, the night is behind us, And black are the waters that sparkled so green. The moon, o'er the combers, looks downward to find us, At rest in the hollows that rustle between.” Magical! Available separately: SATB. Duration: ca. 4:00.
