Philip Spratley was the music teacher at my middle school, who I had the opportunity to meet again a few years ago. This lovely Lullaby is from his opus 12b: ‘In Outlaw country,’ which he kindly gave us permission to record.
May this beautifully played piece both soothe and inspire.
Musicians: Grace Lee leading (viola), Helen Rees and Teresa Brasier, (violins), Jo Garcia and Anna Frazer (cellos), Geth Griffith (double bass), and Fontane Liang (Harp)
Recorded at From the Heart (Regents College 2013)
