Lullabies

Lullabies

For many children lullabies are their first intense contact with music. Sung, or hummed by parents, or sometimes played from recordings, for many children lullabies are a fixed part of the ritual of going to bed. Singing can help babies to sleep, and singing to older children or singing together with them conveys a feeling of well-being and security. In recent years scientific studies have confirmed the beneficial effects of singing with children. Thus, through singing not only will a child’s hearing be trained; positive interactions between speech and the development of intelligence have also been documented. However, often our children were not born with singing, since many parents do not know the songs and the texts, or they do not believe they can sing them anymore.

Here the “lullaby project” began, which – initiated by the concert- and opera singer Cornelius Hauptmann – in cooperation with SWR 2 (Southwest German Radio 2) and Carus-Verlag came into being as a charitable cause. For this project Hauptmann was able to obtain and enthuse 52 of the best singers with German as their mother tongue – many of them are also parents. They all have agreed, especially for this purpose and without honorarium, to each record one lullaby.
