Sleep. (SATB). By Eric Whitacre (1970-). For Choral (SATB DV A Cappella). Walton Choral. Choral. Sacred. Difficulty: medium. Octavo. 12 pages. Walton Music #WJMS1035. Published by Walton Music (HL.8501462).

First premiered at the 2001 ACDA National Convention by the Concordia College Choir, Rene Clausen conductor.
