Description
At the end of Act I, Scene 2 of The Scarlet Letter, Hester is alone in her jail cell with her sleeping baby, having just been confronted by her estranged husband, whom she had until that day assumed was dead. This is the moment when her love for her daughter, Pearl, overwhelms her, and she vows to do everything in her power, despite the morality of her community and her husband's desire for revenge, to protect and nurture her child.

You can hear the lullaby in full on YouTube or Spotify or SoundCloud. It's at the end of the scene.
