About

This setting was commissioned by the Junior School at Diocesan School for Girls, Auckland for one of their choirs, Bella Voce, conducted by Georgina Christiansen. The poem is by English poet and author John Fuller, and is a simple lullaby text.

Lullaby was commissioned to use the school’s tone chimes group in combination with the choir and piano. The tone chimes provide a brief interlude between verses and appear again at the end. In writing the work, a text with references to bells was the obvious choice, although finding something suitable was not an easy task. This little lullaby refers to the bells around the necks of the sheep who 'come to send you to sleep'.
