Woodstock Lullaby Chime

SKU: WLCS

Tuned to peaceful notes from the famous Brahms’ Lullaby, The Woodstock Lullaby Chime reflects both a lullaby and a love song. Johannes Brahms dedicated the Lullaby to his friend Bertha Faber when she had her second son. Bertha and Brahms had been in love years before, and the melody of the Lullaby contains a hidden counter-melody—a love song Bertha used to sing to Brahms during long walks in the park. Written in 1868, Brahms’ Lullaby was first performed in public on December 22nd, 1869, and it remains the song parents the world over sing to their babies to help them drift off to sleep.

Lullaby and goodnight,
With roses bedight,
With lilies o'er spread
Is baby's wee bed.
Lay thee down now and rest,
May thy slumber be blessed.
