Lully, lullay ~ for Newtown

This song by composer Philip Stopford was sung by the Roden Boys Choir last year during the Christmas season. The words are based on the Coventry Carol, which takes its inspiration from the account of the murder of the innocent children, in the Gospel of Matthew. I was reminded of this song again today and felt a shock when I realised the words could have been written today, for the victims of the shooting in Newtown.
May this haunting piece of music serve to remind us that no matter how shattered we may feel, we can always sing a song of grief for those who were made silent.
