The infant king

First line:
Sing lullaby!
traditional Basque carol
author of text

This and Gabriel’s message are the two best-loved of a number of Basque folk carols first published in Charles Bordes’ collection of 1895 and popularized in the English-speaking world by their publication in the University Carol Book with Sabine Baring-Gould’s excellent English texts. For many years both carols were regularly sung at King’s College, Cambridge.
