We are delighted to share with you the songs from the London leg of our current Lullaby Project collaboration with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, written and recorded with refugee and migrant mothers from Praxis Community Projects , mothers from Clean Break and fathers from Sounding Out. Listen to them below.

The Lullaby Project gives mums and dads in challenging circumstances the opportunity to create bespoke lullabies alongside professional musicians, allowing them to explore their thoughts and feelings about their children, enhancing the bond between them by creating something that can be treasured forever.

The Lullaby Project was originally devised by Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute in the US. Following a successful UK pilot in 2017, in early 2020 the Irene Taylor Trust again worked in collaboration with the Royal Philharmonic to run two projects in London, as part of a wider programme supported by Arts Council England to bring the project to three regions of the UK.
