About this course
Fredrich Froebel, inventor of Kindergarten, wrote “Mutter und Koselieder” (Mother and nursery songs) in 1844, when he was in his fifties. He wrote it for families, and so the daily life of the German family is described in the pictures, verses, games and music from this work. In 1906 his original music was translated into English in the public domain work “Motherplay”. This is the work we have compiled on this site.
Introduction to the Mother Play Songs.
"Falling, Falling" is from Froebel's "Mother-Play", as arranged in the 1906 edition. Original music by Froebel.
