A Lamenting Lullaby for Oboe, Violin, Viola and Cello


A Lamenting Lullaby was composed in 2007 and revised in 2018. It is a meditation on the death of a child at birth, and of quiet grief. The piece is in three sections: slow, sustained music for the strings of restrained tension and release; a distant solo oboe call; and folk-like lullaby music of gentle simplicity, with lamenting phrases from the oboe.
