In the tradition of lullabies past, “Lie Still and Slumber” encompasses the soothing comfort of angelic voices with tender words like those of this text by Isaac Watt. Delicate and smooth, this piece recreates the rocking of a cradle or a mother’s arms through the rhythmic sway created by the rising and falling of the arpeggiated accompaniment.
