An Irish Lullaby (Shoheen Sho)
Words and music by Alice Rose Denny / arr. Bruce Trinkley
SATB, a cappella
An alternate text (included in the publication) makes this stunning lullaby from Ireland appropriate for Christmas or at any time of year. Sustained a cappella phrases create expressive moments, and brief dissonances resolve beautifully every time. Easy on the voice and keen on the ear, this is one to sing every day as a warm-up selection, or as a "show off" piece at a moment's notice. Lovely.
