Song Description

Mother singing to her baby boy, who will one day be the hero of and for the clan. Survival in the times passed of a clan meant stealing from one clan to another. Some called him a criminal others called him a hero.

Occasional shifts into minor chords bring out the modal beauty of the air, which is warmly and faultlessly lilted by the singer. This Scots lullaby has some martial undertones. The arrangement reflects that, moving from symphonic to intimate and back again. Together with the well-judged vocal, it makes for a moving performance, well worth the listen.

very enjoyable tract! Beautiful voice. Congradulations!

Lyrics

Hush-a-by darling, and Hush-a-by dear-o
Hush-a-by darling will yet be a hero, none will be bigger or braver or stronger lullaby little one crying no longer.

chorus-
Lullaby, little one, bonnie wee baby,
he'll be a hero, and fight for us maybe,
cattle and horses and sheep will his prey be,
none will be bolder or braver than baby

Softly and silently eyelids are
closing,
dearest wee jewel, so gently he's dozing; softly he's resting by slumber o're taken,
soundly he's sleeping, and sweetly he's waken.

chorus

Peacefully, pleasantly, slumber has found him, Angels are lovingly watching around him, beautiful spirits his sorrow beguiling,
sweetly they whisper and baby is smiling.

Hush-a-by darling will yet be a
hero.
