Review
"Having known and performed Bill Roberts's 'Little Lamb, who made thee?' in the composer's score, it was a moment of celebration to see it in print. I have few words for this music: beguiling, utterly beguiling. Like Bob [Powell], Bill knows exactly how to write for trebles; order this piece now. You and your trebles will bless the moment you did." --AAM Journal, March 2001

Description
A warm and lovely setting of the William Blake poem, for unison voices and keyboard. Although appropriate at any time of year, this piece would be an especially touching addition to a Christmas Eve service or for an infant baptism.

Text
Little lamb, who made thee?
Dost thou know who made thee?
Gave thee life and bid thee feed
by the stream and o'er the mead;
gave thee clothing of delight,
softest clothing, wooly bright;
gave thee such a tender voice,
making all the vales rejoice.
Little lamb who made thee?
Dost thou know who made thee?
Little lamb, I'll tell thee;
little lamb, I'll tell thee.

He is called by thy name.
For he calls himself a lamb.
He is meek and he is mild;
he became a little child.
I a child and thou a lamb;
we are called by his name.
Little lamb, God bless thee;
little lamb God bless thee.

--William Blake
