Sleep My Child was written for the choir of St. Michael and All Angels Episcopal Church in Isla Vista, California where I serve as Music Director and organist. The text is based on Isaiah 40 and Luke 2. It is suitable for the Christmas season. It can also be performed throughout the year as a little lullaby.
