Herbert Howells' Cradle Song for Organ. Composed in 1913. Duration: 1 minute 30 seconds.

'Almost a century before Rutter's piece was composed, this equally brief - and not wholly dissimilar - work appeared. Marked Molto semplice, in 3/8 time, Howells's piece has fluently original harmonic interest, and concentrates its simple initial idea with attractively­flowing momentum. This is a perfect piece for a Christening service, and would also make an impressive intermezzo­like item in a recital of English organ music.' - The Organ
