Baw My Barne is an intricate and intriguing setting of a medieval lullaby, which may be performed either by a group of eight solo voices or by a larger choir with a solo soprano. Written for SSAATTBB, this short work features Middle English, set with complex harmonies and angular intervals, which makes for a unique blend of old and new that could feature in any professional vocal or choral concert.
