Tune of the Day: Cradle Song

Slow air by James Scott Skinner

It is told that Scots composer James Scott Skinner wrote this slow air after seeing a sick child being cared for by his mother. While in a hotel, he went into the wrong room by mistake and saw the mother bending over the cradle.

Thanks to Ronald for suggesting this tune!
