All Through the Night


A simple but lovely setting of the beloved Welsh lullaby (Ar Hyd y Nos), with the traditional English text penned by Harold Boulton in 1884. Three parts are employed throughout, with a descant adding hovering beauty in the second verse. Accessible for most children’s and women’s choirs.

A licensed copy is required for each member performing.



My friend Hatty Fraser and I both responded to the pandemic by sharing “peace of mind” — she by singing to her children, and I with my Facebook community through nightly piano “vespers.” One night I played the Welsh lullaby All Through the Night, and Hatty reached out to ask if I could set it for voices so that she could record it to share with her family in England.  A project was born, resulting in twelve a cappella arrangements which Hatty recorded.  After casting about for a suitable name, we simultaneously realized, on the same day — without mentioning it to the other — that perhaps it should be simply named PEACE.
