These two exquisite lullabies were commissioned by Janet Brand for her dear friends and their new children. Each is a rocking vocalise framed by cello and flute and a quiet piano. The idea of “spiral” and “spiky” came from Janet, who had a different feeling about each child. One lullaby is a set of revolving consonances, the other ever-resolving dissonances. Though each lullaby comes to rest, it can slip back to the beginning and start over and over.
