A Good-Night

First line:
Close now thine eyes and rest secure
author of text

Sir Richard Rodney Bennett (1936–2012) composed A Good-Night, a setting of prose by the 17th-century writer Francis Quarles, in 1999 as his contribution to A Garland for Linda, a collaborative series of works written in memory of Linda McCartney (to which John Tavener also contributed). Bennett had known Linda McCartney, and this touching tribute is remarkable for its harmonic warmth and melodic simplicity.
