Cradle Song

Mel.: W. Y. Hurlstone (1900)

The melody of this lullaby comes from ‘Four Songs for Soprano’ by the English composer William Yeates Hurlstone (1876 - 1906). The text is borrowed from a Spanish carol: the cradle is rocked by Joseph, the profit Anna and St Joachim (named as the father of Mary). The arrangement opens with a ‘searching’ chord after which the listener is gradually drawn into the scene. (arr.: Sybolt de Jong)

Spanish traditional

The baby child of Mary, now cradle he has none;
his father is a carpenter and he shall make him one.

The lady good St Anna, the lord St Joachim,
they rock the baby’s cradle, that sleep may come to him.

Chorus: That sleep may come to him...

Then sleep thou too, my baby, my little heart so dear;
the Virgin is beside thee, the Son of God is near.
