Tune of the Day: Schubert's Wiegenlied
Franz Schubert composed his lullaby “Schlafe, schlafe, holder süßer Knabe” (“Sleep, sleep, gracious, sweet boy”), in November 1816. The song is also known as “Mille cherubini in coro” after an Italian language arrangement for voice and orchestra.
Tenor Luciano Pavarotti used to sing this piece in his Christmas concerts.
Thanks to Allie for suggesting this tune!
