RELATED LESSON PLAN
"“Eine Kleine Kindermusik”: Children’s Songs from Germany"

Ernst Wolff (1905–1991), a classically trained singer of opera and German lieder, recorded a total of five albums of German songs for Folkways from 1959 to 1961. Two of the recordings focus on children’s music. Accompanying himself on the piano, he devotes his first volume of the collection largely to animals— a musical menagerie featuring cats, birds, horses, rabbits, and others. The liner notes include the German lyrics along with their English translation.
