The text, adapted by composer Allan Naplan, is a lullaby written by the Belorussian Yiddish poet, David Einhorn. On the eve of World War II, more than half of the sixteen million Jews of the world spoke Yiddish. With the onset of the Holocaust, however, the expansion of the language and culture came to an abrupt end. In recent years, the language is once again being studied, spoken and sung. Beautiful work for SSA Voices, Piano and optional Cello. Duration: ca. 5:00.

    This is a beautiful piece, with a wistful to melancholy tone. It's a bit more than a lullaby given the text and historical context - WWII lullaby from the Jewish ghetto. I seem to recall that it was inspired by the 'little girl in the red coat' from Schindler's...

    List. It's not really that hard, but it is in Yiddish, and the sound isn't straight-forward Western major or minor. The soprano descant can bit a little tricky - it needs to stay very light and quite soft even when high.
