Translating as “Hush” or “Quiet child, baby, little one,” this arrangement incorporates a South African folk song lullaby with additional original music using lyrics from another South African lullaby. The subtle percussion, included in the choral, is played lightly as the piece begins in unison, then a round, adding harmony and later a descant which provides a “heavenly” layer above the folk melody.
