This piece was originally written as the theme song for an animated movie feature that ended up being scrapped. It is a wonderful introduction to Whitacre’s lush harmonies and intimate text setting without being overly challenging. The gorgeous, wave-like “oo” section paired with the sweet, achingly lovely lullaby text creates an instant winner with an intermediate to advanced women’s ensemble. My women beg to rehearse this every day.
