Baby Lullaby Music

Soothing Lullabies proven to make you sleepy.

A second version of Brahms Lullaby (Cradle Song) can be heard near the end of the lullaby album. It’s very similar in arrangement to what you’ve already heard in the opening song; it’s just slightly slower and has an added muted string section that softens the texture a bit.

As for the introduction to the song, there is a very soft organ-like part that is at once soothing and haunting. It last about 20 seconds before we hear the piano playing the familiar Brahms Lullaby theme. At the end of the song, we again hear the soft organ-like instrument carrying the song a few seconds beyond the rest of the track and fading out very slowly.

Composed by Brahms for his friend Bertha Faber and her newborn baby, this Cradle Song is of course one of the most recognizable songs in the world, having been hummed or sung softly by millions of mothers and other caregivers since it was first published in 1868. Our arrangement features the humming voice of Amy Rouse, and one word that is sung, if you can find it…

Brahms Lullaby (Cradle Song) Lyrics:

Lullaby and good night,
With roses bedight,
With lilies o’er spread
Is baby’s wee bed.
Lay thee down now and rest,
May thy slumber be blessed.

Lullaby and good night,
Thy mother’s delight,
Bright angels beside
My darling abide.
They will guard thee at rest,
Thou shalt wake on my breast.
