Mariš Wiegenlied, Op 76 No 52

Introduction  EnglishFranÁaisDeutsch
Most of Max Reger’s enormous output consists of extremely complex instrumental music but for his Opus 76 he produced sixty (!) songs which have their origin in folk poetry and song. Number 52 is the Mariä Wiegenlied (‘Mary’s Cradle Song’) which became immediately popular and was transcribed for piano by Reger himself and published in 1924.
