Unborn Lullabye (SATB)

$1.80

Voicing: Mixed Choir

The story:

Unborn Lullabye was written for my daughter, Lyla, before she was born. It is a lullabye that tells the story and shares the dreams that a first-time parent may have for their little one.

I composed this piece over the summer of 2015.  My wife was due with Lyla on October 6th.  I knew I had planned to take off a few weeks from my high school choral position when Lyla was born.  On September 21st, I had my first Monday evening rehearsal of the year with my Mixed Choir. I surprised them with Unborn Lullabye, which they loved.  They learned the first version of it in about 30 minutes.  My intent was to have it ready by the time Lyla was ready.

I was so happy that my choir loved the lullabye and looked forward to continuing working on the piece all week.  When I arrived home at 10pm, on a high, I sat down with my wife on the couch, sharing my experience of the lullabye……….she responded by sharing that she was having contractions.  Twelve hours later, Lyla was born.

The touching lyrics and accessible melody is sure to connect with your choir, and pull on the heart-strings of an audience. This recording is my high school choir performing it at the Winter Concert.
