The refrain of this Christmas song, to anonymous words from the 15th century, is a lullaby sung by Mary to the newborn Jesus:
Lullay myn lyking, my dere sonne, my sweeting
Lullay my dere herte, myn own dere derling.
This refrain is sung by the three-part chorus (no tenors needed!), to a charmingly simple 3/4 melody. The soprano and baritone solos (which may be taken by members of the choir) tell the story; their vocal lines are like recitatives that cannot help bursting into melody.
