Geoffrey Wright’s Transatlantic Lullaby is a song of immediate appeal, and was written in 1936 for a Gate Theatre musical on that most English of subjects, an English prep school; the matron is an American floozie who sings her charges to sleep with her Transatlantic Lullaby. Both the soft-shoe shuffle of the refrain and the haunting parallel triads that accompany the singer’s opening lines unerringly conjure up the sleeping city.
