Let's put it this way — every Saturday morning, we would listen to the Metropolitan Opera broadcast, and she would sing along. Often, she would sound lots better than the soprano on the radio. For years, I was under the impression that all mothers sang like that.

I always thought it was a tremendous waste that she didn't go for that opportunity, but as they say about the arts, "If you can be discouraged from pursuing singing (acting, dance, writing, violin, painting, etc.), you should be."
Back to the lullabies. Sure, she sang the usual Brahms and a few other standard kids things, but our favorite was when she sang the "Evening Prayer" (Abendsegen) from Humperdinck's Hansel and Gretel. Here is a link to the lullaby: Evening Prayer from Hansel and Gretel
