The first of two works in OUP's new secular series, Voice Junction, A Cradle Song sets Yeats' beautiful words describing the love of a parent for their child.
Switching between major and minor tonalities, A Cradle Song is quiet and understated, with sensitive a cappella scoring that makes the sentiments seem all the more real. This is an impressive and sophisticated debut from Swedish singer and composer Joel Nilson.
