This short piece was originally the middle section of And Music’s Power Obey written for South Auckland Choral Society in 2010. The text of that work set three poems about music, speaking in turn about its personal importance and effect, its use as a lullaby, and its magical and healing properties. This second text (originally just titled Lullaby) is by Clemens Brentano, an early nineteenth century German writer of poetry and short stories, who spent much of his later life promoting the Catholic faith.
Sing a Whispered Lullaby was re-worked for the senior prizegiving of St Mary’s College, Auckland.
Text by Clemens Brentano (adapted English translation)
