Product Description

SAB and Soprano soloist with piano accompaniment
ca. 3'-3'30" duration

Aijā, ŽūŽū, arranged by Charles Griffin, is a stunning choral piece that combines two enormously popular Latvian lullabies to create a unique and emotive new musical journey. With three-part SAB vocals, a beautiful soprano solo, and delicate piano accompaniment, this piece will transport listeners to a serene and comforting world.

Perfect for choirs looking to explore Eastern European folksong traditions or simply add a touch of serenity to their repertoire, Aijā, ŽūŽū premiered in 2006 at the VII International Festival for Young Latvian Musicians in Ogre, Latvia. This arrangement assumes few male singers but can be adapted to suit the dynamic balance of your group.

The PDF score comes with a pronunciation guide and lyrics translation.

Here is the English translation. The internet doesn't do well with Latvian characters.

Little children, little worry,
Big children, great worry, oh!
Little children demand bread,
Big children demand silver, oh!

I can see through a tiny window
The warm little mouse who brings you slumber, oh!

I pray the cat does not see him.
I pray the cat will let him be, oh!

A little moon is rising above the hill, lullaby.
The moon gave me his coat of stars, lullaby.
