Lullay my liking (Setting I)

$2.60

Three unison verses with choral refrain. There are two settings, one for mixed voices (SATB div), the other for men’s voices (AATBB). Although the printed version lists the men’s voice version as Setting II, it was actually composed first and performed on Christmas Eve 1953.

Lyrics

I saw a fair maiden sitten and sing
She lulled a little child,
A sweete Lording.

Refrain
Lullay my liking, my dear son, my sweeting;
Lullay my dear heart, mine own dear darling!

That eternal Lord is he that made alle thing;
Of alle lordes he is Lord,
Of alle kinges King. -refrain-

Angels bright they sang that night and saiden to that child:
“Blest be thou, and so be she that is both meek and mild.” -refrain-
