Christmas is not just a celebration of the birth of the Holy Infant – it is above all a celebration of love. Symbolically a divine baby is reborn in our soul, but also every baby in the house is an occasion for a Christmas song to be heard that will remind us of this whole story.
In the following collection, Singing Bell has collected 5 lullabies based on traditional European melodies for people of all ages who want to sing to a loved one – their baby or their little brother or sister. Let the music play and play again and -why not? – dream along with your angel. Some of the songs may have a nostalgic mood, with the music and lyrics of their favorite Christmas children’s songs taking them on a carefree childhood journey.
What Child Is This?
“What Child Is This?” is a popular Christmas carol based on the melody of the traditional tune “Greensleeves“. It was written in 1865 by English writer William Chatterton Dix.
Who is this child who sleeps peacefully in his mother’s arms while angels and shepherds surround him? He is the king of the faithful ones and Maria is singing a lullaby for him. Enjoy it performed by the beautiful voice of Sonia Ter Hovanessian.
The First Noel
“The First Noel” is a traditional classical English carol, most likely from the 18th century, although possibly earlier.
A lullaby for the first Christmas. With the protection of the angels, the light of the star and the prayer of the magicians, the little Christ comes into the world.
The melody in 3/4 meter predisposes for relaxation. Sing and let your imagination bring the images to life.
Twinkle Twinkle Christmas Star
“Twinkle, Twinkle, Christmas Star” is a holiday version of the popular children’s song “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star” for Christmas.
That is clearly the most typical and classic melody coming to mind when it comes to lullabies for babies.
A la Nanita Nana
One of the most famous Christmas lullabies of Spanish origin. The blessed baby is sleepy. “Sleep, my baby,” sings the mother, and invites the song of the gargling water and the nightingale to accompany him in his sweet sleep.
Listen to the Singing Bell’s arrangement in the following video, as it is taken from the album with 21 Spanish Christmas Songs.
In our opinion the most tender of the 5 lullabies of the collection, also of Spanish origin.
Sleep, and all creatures of nature, from the huge elephant to the small mosquito, will protect your sleep. Heavenly voices will announce the arrival of the uncle baby.
The following is a karaoke video with Spanish lyrics. Even if you do not sing Spanish, the melody and the orchestration will win you over and give you and your baby peace of mind.
