Trans. by Rebecca Barry

This piece is unusual in that the choir is accompanied by a solo cello. Yet, that is precisely part of the piece's charm. The cello is so descriptive, sometimes providing the foundation, other times flowing over the choir into an artful obbligato. Russian romantic composer Anton Arensky writes beautiful music that depicts his time and location. The text, provided in phonetic Russian, describes the coming of nightfall and is a lullaby encouraging the child to go to sleep.
