Wiegenlied (Cradle Song or Lullaby). Brahms Help Opus Details
For feedback and questions, please contact Victor Gomersall.
The tune of this lullaby by Brahms is one of the best-known tunes in the world. It is sung by mothers all over the world to lull their children to sleep.

The score and mp3 file are both almost exactly as Brahms originally published them. The voice part has been played by a violin on the mp3 recording.

Here is a translation from the German words:_

Good evening, good night, With roses adorned, With carnations covered, Slip under the covers. Tomorrow morning, if God wants so, you will wake once again.
