    A German lullaby starting with “Tausend Engelein im……” I would like to know the title of the song. Could someone help me? Thanks.

  3. Lisa Says:

    It looks like it’s:

    “Tausend Engelein im Chore” (A thousand angels in the choir) by Schubert
    German Text: Heinz Erich Karallus

    That’s what I found on YouTube.

    Hello, Lisa,
    Thanks for your time and efforts. So it’s a Christmas song, not a lullaby.
    Best regards,
    Charles

    There was a Japanese (Taisho era, 1912-1925) love song starting with “Ki-mi-ka-la-mo-lat-da han-ka-chi-wa …..” It was still quite popular by the end of 1940s. Could someone let me know the title/name of this song? Thank you very much.

    Hi Chris – A lot of times Christmas songs are like lullabies to/about Jesus.
