(Vocal). From the composer Eric Whitacre: "Over the past six years I must have read Goodnight Moon to my son a thousand times, maybe more. Somewhere around reading number 500 I began hearing little musical fragments as I read, and over time those fragments began to blossom into a simple, sweet lullaby. I knew it was a long shot, but we contacted the publisher to see if they would allow the text to be set to music. To my surprise and delight they agreed the first time they had ever allowed Goodnight Moon to be used in such a way. I composed the piece relatively quickly, setting the text for harp, string orchestra, and my son's mother, soprano Hila Plitmann. It has become one of my son's favourite songs; now Hila sings it to him before bed nearly every night." This arrangement is for high voice and piano accompaniment.
