Thursday music on Wednesday.

Lyric Translation

The child is laid in its cradle, sometimes crying, sometimes smiling.

The child is laid in its cradle, sometimes crying, sometimes smiling

Sleep, now sleep in Jesus’ name; Jesus watch over this child.

Sleep, now sleep in Jesus’ name; Jesus watch over this child

Mother lifts me to her lap, dances with me to and fro.

Mother lifts me to her lap, dances with me to and fro

Dance then, dance with your children, dance, and your child will dance.

Dance then, dance with your children, dance, and your child will dance.

    Mediaeval? Wonder where the timpani guy gets his queues!?

    I really like this…and of course it isn’t what we usually post around here!

      I suppose modern interpretations of Norwegian folk music is a bit different. I found the polyphany enchanting and the lyrics charming. Check out the “About” tab on the Trio’s web page. A pretty intriguing outfit altogether.
