Dormi, Jesu published

The Latin text of this lullaby has been known and admired for centuries: it was translated into English by Coleridge, and there are musical settings by Rubbra and by Webern (one of the very few twelve note carols in existence).  The present setting was written at the invitation of Stephen Cleobury, Director of Music at King’s College, Cambridge, for the King’s Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols, in 1999.
