This is an extremely straightforward, but effective arrangement of a traditional cradle song for upper voices and harp. The first time I performed this at the end of a concert with a young harpist, the audience were so enthralled with its simplicity and beauty, that the piece had to be repeated. It is also very suited to childrens choirs.
