||This old lullaby, a gentle and expressive piece, is written in the key of C Major. Scored for 4 cellos. The melody, found in cello 1 and 2 moves freely throughout and is supported bya flowing, low eighth note line found in cello 4. It is ideal for younger players who are ready for the challenge of playing parts that are rhythmically independent of each other. Because of the simplicity of this work and the gentle, pianissimo ending, this lullaby is a real audience favorite.
