This traditional American lullaby has a simple, yet captivating melody. Set securely in the Aeolian mode (natural minor), its rainbow-like phrase begins with upward jumps, and then ends with relaxing downward scale steps. In this arrangement, the environment of the gentle lullaby is occasionally infused with a restless tension. Printed solos are provided in the viola and first violin parts. Opportunities for improvised or composed student solos are provided as well. Some position work is required in the first violin, cello, bass, and the solo viola. Dramatic.
