I first listened to this song in another class of mine when a student was presenting on it. We only got to hear a snippet of the song but it was so beautiful I had to go back and find it on my own. Just the way the voices harmonize is wonderful, and the fact that this song is so old (if you look at the lyrics, you'll see they're in Middle English) is part of what makes it beautiful to me. It's not quite a lullaby, but I'm not sure I'd want it to be. I like it how it is, just a peaceful love song.
