Quick Overview

Golden Slumbers is based on the poem "Cradle Song" from the Thomas Decker 1603 comedy "Patient Gissel." The poem was set to music by Peter Warlock in 1918 as a lullaby. Carl Strommen pushes the beauty and lyrical nature of the song in his arrangement. There are interesting changes in color and texture with good use of solo instruments to contrast the full ensemble statements. A perfect vehicle to teach phrasing and musicianship to developing musicians.
