About this course

"The Little Nest" is from Froebel's "Mother-Play", as arranged in the 1906 edition.  Original duet by Froebel

In 1895 another translation of his work was created called “ The songs and music of Friedrich Froebel’s Mother play ”. In this work, the compilers matched new poetry that followed the spirit of the first, and put them to new music with piano accompaniments. They recognized that although Froebel’s music book was widely distributed, it was rarely used because the unaccompanied duets were difficult for many to sing. The new music is more simple, while maintaining the moral lessons and appeal of the first. We are pleased to bring you this music as well.
