Looking for a cappella poem songs.

Recently I came across this video for It's a Fine Day by Jane and learned that it is actually a poem done a cappella. I'm looking for more of the same, recordings of sung poems a cappella with a similar "mood". Bonus points if it's lullaby worthy.

Chumbawamba's "English Rebel Songs" is worth a listen. It's not all a capella, but around 60% of it is.,

The Story did a version of the e e cummings poem love is more thicker than forget. Maybe not lullaby but fairly low-key.

Whoops, missed the a cappella part. It has a bit of piano but is mostly just their voices.

not certain but billy bragg's tender comrade is a capella and feels like a poem. or a song. an a capella song. maybe not lullaby-worthy.
