Eric Whitacre: The Seal Lullaby

Books | SATB, Piano Accompaniment

Publisher: Chester Music
Composer: Eric Whitacre
Format: Sheet Music | Vocal Work

The Seal Lullaby by Eric Whitacre is a delightful, deceptively simple setting in the form of a lullaby for mixed choir and accompaniment of Rudyard Kipling's poem 'The White Seal'.

This full SATB (Soprano, Alto, Tenor, Bass) choral arrangement with Piano accompaniment is accurately transcribed and appears in great quality print, with easy part writing throughout, so that singing this emotive song is as easy as possible.

When Eric Whitacre was commissioned to write music for an animated feature, he was so struck by the words of Kipling's lovely poem that he immediately sat down to write a calm and subtle yet musically interesting piece. Unfortunately, the song was not used, but was later commissioned by the Towne Singers, and we are pleased to offer you this Seal Lullaby sheet music.

        I heard this piece of music being played on Classic F.M and was impressed by the composition. I sought out information on the web as to the author and any other details and eventually located musicroom as the suppliers of the sheet music. I have always been very wary of ordering things on the web but really wanted the music so I ordered a copy. All my fears about security and security were laid to waste by this company. After ordering, my purchase was in my hand less than 48 hours later in a very secure,sturdy package with no damage. The product itself is also first class and I will have no hesitation in using musicroom again for any purchaes in the future. Thankyou

        This piece was the choice of my choir's musical director. I find it musically interesting, if a bit soft-centred. It is spoiled by Whitacre's choice of the Kipling poem, which is anthropomorphic enough to please the Disney whom Whitaker obviously admires. Sadly I do not, though I am aware of how popular the song has become - but then, Bambi was popular too.

        Beautiful choral piece with intermediate piano. Very popular piece in North America, deserves wider recognition.

        I can't wait to introduce this beautiful song to my community choir, after hearing it on Classic FM. Having watched Eric Whitacre conduct the National Youth Choir, I know our ageing voices won't be able to match their sound, but we shall enjoy trying.

        A beautiful piece of music that easily encourages your imagination. A shapely sound that is ideal for any choir.Great, instance service too, from Musicroom. Perfect when time ..in this case .. Was not on my side.
