Program Note

Sleep Deeply was inspired by the lyrics written by Michael McGlynn, composer and Artistic Director of the Irish vocal ensemble Anúna, whom I have long admired. McGlynn originally wrote the lyrics in the Irish language, Codhlaím Go Súan, based on a medieval Irish poetry that adds mystique to the setting. The text explores the circular nature of life. The refrain phrase, I sleep softly in your heart my Christ, is sung as a lullaby and it illuminates devotion and love for God.
