Berceuse

Soothing lullaby to calm you for chamber ensemble

Bb clarinet, violin or viola, cello, piano or string quartet

This gently rocking lullaby has been performed more than any of Becky’s work and contains her favourite instruments. It has been said of the piece, “It makes me homesick for somewhere I’ve never been.” The simplicity of the materials provides scope for each of the musicians to play with their voice rising and falling, as if they were waves of the sea sparkling with moonlight on their crest.

Written in 1989, this 6-minute piece is suitable for capable secondary school, university students and professionals.
