“I’m sleeping but my heart’s awake”
Lullabies from around the world from medieval times to the present day, including Merula’s mesmerising Canzonetta Spirituale, Hildegard Von Bingen’s wild visions and spoken words.
Portraying dreams and desires of mothers throughout centuries of night time songs, these magical melodies seem to aim to comfort the child but often are sung for the benefit of the grown-ups themselves.
Demons & pixies, lost castles and forgotten secrets revel in our twilight fantasy.
