Johannes Brahms delighted in the beauty of the folk songs of his homeland; he added artful accompaniments to them and arranged many for choirs. While intended for solo voice, Marienwürmchen, with its simple lyrical melody, is particularly appropriate for young singers. The text is similar to the traditional "Ladybug, ladybug..." rhyme which many American children know. German pronunciation included.
For unison choir and piano. German and English.
