Durme, Durme

This is a traditional Sephardic lullaby surviving down the generations dating back to when Jews were expelled from Spain in 1492, a beautiful lullaby telling a child to sleep peacefully, in the language called Ladino, performed by Sing! Community Choir, arranged by Audrey Snyder, conducted by Anna Lovewell and accompanied by Bethany Kirby.
