Goodnight Moon by : Eric Whitacre : Margaret Wise Brown
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 wife; 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.
