Schumann's four-part setting of Friedrich Rückert's poem was first published in 1846. It's known and loved in the anglophone world in translation as The Angels' Goodnight sung here by the Tewkesbury Abbey School Choir directed by Benjamin Nicholas. Enjoy :-).

Lluís Travesset is the soloist of this performance of  the much-loved Catalan Christmas song and lullaby El cant dels ocells (Song of the birds) at a concert given at Santa Maria in Trastevere, Rome, in 2012. It's a charming piece that like the the beautiful old Castilian carol "Brincan y bailan" ("They jump and dance") about which I wrote here back in 2011 (see: Escolanía del Escorial – Brincan y bailan – (Traditional Castilian Carol) | Saturday Chorale) tells of nature's joy at learning of the birth of Jesus Christ in a stable in Bethlehem.  Enjoy :-)
