MIDI / Noteworthy Composer
A la nanita nana, nanita ea, nanita ea,
Sleep, sleep my little Jesus,
May peace attend Thee, may peace attend Thee. –
To the world, little Savior, new hope thou'rt bringing.
All the world, little Savior, Thy praises singing,
God's angels hov'ring o'er Thee chant alleluia.
A la nanita nana, nanita ea.
A traditional Spanish carol with English lyrics by Norman Luboff. This is a very unusual carol, combining a tender lullaby with profound thought over a melody and rhythms of popular Latin authenticity. The change from a minor to a major key in the carol is a feature of certain Spanish folksongs, and is also found in some Cuban folksongs (guajira).
