morning star lullaby – a wichita tribal lullaby (ssaa)
Morning Star Lullaby is a setting of a lullaby in the language of the Native American Wichita tribe. Since this is not a written language, it is fast becoming lost as only a handful of individuals still speak it. Morning Star Lullaby was commissioned by Tracey Gregg-Boothby who is a member of the Wichita tribe. The piece was commissioned to preserve and celebrate the music of her tribe’s heritage.
