Lullaby, also titled Bedtime Story on one manuscript copy, has become one of my favorite compositions by David Goldstein (1918-2003). He sent a copy to me some years ago because he knew I loved good SAT trios.
Judging by the dates and types of pieces found with it in a file folder in his effects, Lullaby was probably written in 1987 when Goldstein was preparing the work that became Jewish Festival Songs, published by the Provincetown Bookshop in 1988. It is my guess that Lullaby was not included in the Songs collection because it did not fit a specific Jewish holy day or celebration, as did its file-mates. (text continued in download)
