Lullaby no. 1 was written (and never before published) for use by composer and his spouse on the birth of their child. Family members not musically trained were able to learn the tune by rote with positive desired results. Numbers 2-7 are newly composed. All songs have been given instrumental accompaniments suitable for pubic concert performance.
