for SS and organ 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. Also available for SATB.

Review quote

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. * Gordon Appleton, Church Music Quarterly, December 2103 *

About Sir Charles Villiers Stanford

Philip Moore has held posts at Eton, Canterbury, Guildford, and York. He began composing in early childhood and has continued unabated. Although much of his music is for choirs and organs, he has also written song cycles, chamber music, piano music, and music for orchestras. His music is sung in cathedrals and churches throughout the world, and he is frequently featured on BBC broadcasts of choral evensong. Moore's compositions include At the round earth's
imagined corners and Ode to St Cecilia's Day, which use identical forces to Rutter's Gloria and Britten's St Nicolas Cantata respectively, and his anthem As the Father hath loved me was included in The Choirbook for The Queen.
