Bassett is quoted in the liner notes as believing that the Lullaby “...may possibly be the only lullaby ever specifically written for, and commissioned by, a band.”

 

The technical demands of this work are minimal if one only considers manual technique. The only passages that may pose a challenge include the whole-tone scale harmonized in thirds in measure 9 for flute and the accelerando/rallentando at measures 29 through 33 for woodwinds.
