Lullabies are private songs between mothers and babies, yet in every culture there are well-known, enduring lullabies that are shared generation after generation, some for hundreds of years. There is a darkness to many lullabies — with their mournful melodies and macabre lyrics — and a shared understanding between women, perhaps, that in this private space it is possible to speak of the unspeakable; "to sing the unsung".
