Richard Rodney Bennett's Lullaby Baby is dedicated to the Choir of King's College, Cambridge. This work for SATB choir unaccompanied is a setting of text by John Phillip.
Duration: 3 minutes.
"This delightful setting of a 16th-century text was written for the choir of King’s College, Cambridge and requires fine intonation, especially in the jazz-influenced harmonies. A good performance of this carol will create a momentary time of peace amid the jollity of Christmas".

Lullaby Baby, a 1986 setting of words by the 16th-century John Phillip (also set by Britten) is dedicated to King's College, Cambridge, and needs such a choir to do justice to the richly varied harmonies which set the repeated stanzas and refrain.
