This is an English language version of the gorgeous traditional Scottish Gaelic Christmas lullaby Tàladh Chrìosda. Suitable for any children's choir or church choir with access to handbells.

Canasg also offers quite different settings for SATB voices with flute and harp or piano and, in Gaelic or English, for SAB a cappella.


My darling love and treasure, you,
My wealth and joy, my pleasure, you,
My gorgeous handsome baby, you,
I humbly bow to you.

I love your eyes that gently see,
I love your sweet humility,
In hope and love and charity,
You show us how to be.

English words © Peter Hill & Sheena Phillips, translated from the Gaelic
