Program Note:

This lovely, slightly jazzy lullaby in the French style is perfect for students seeking a pleasing slow piece for recital or private study. The melody derives from my unpublished song setting of the poem "Let Evening Come" by Jane Kenyon, reworked and adapted for oboe. The music resonantes with the tone of tender acceptance in Kenyon's poem, with a few spikes and harmonic twists reminiscent of Poulenc.
