“A Lullaby” (Traditional Song) – from the Album “Fire Within”, interpeted by Libana, New England’s international touring world music ensemble. The songs from Fire Within are rounds. Minimalist by nature, rounds create an exquisite circular motion for both the singers and the listener. The song Lullaby is a traditional song that comes from the British folk traditions transplanted to America and has no established author, because it dates from the pre-publishing era.
