Stanford - Lullaby (No.5 from Six Sketches)

ABRSM Grade 2 – B2

The gentle rocking motion that is established in the dotted crotchets at the very start continues throughout this piece, with simple melodic phrases that lead the music smoothly into some related keys. Lullaby offers the player the opportunity to develop quality of tone and phrasing in soft dynamics, p and pp.
