This gentle carol sets the text of Isaac Watts' popular 'Cradle Song' to the music of Charles Villiers Stanford's lullaby, 'Golden slumbers, kiss your eyes', from his Six Songs (op. 19), written in 1882. In Moore's arrangement, the graceful, lilting melody is enhanced by sensitive choral harmonies that explore a variety of textures.
Review by Gordon Appleton: Stanford's setting of 'Golden Slumbers' has been arranged for two-part soprano voices and organ (or piano) by Philip Moore, using Isaac Watts' Cradle Song which is also a wonderful text to sing at a baptism of a child. This delightful melody, sensitively arranged to the familiar text, deserves to be widely used.
Also available for SATB.
