In 1874, Cramer & Co., published a set of songs by Sullivan entitled The Young Mother, Three Simple Songs. The first two, this song and Ay De Mi with words by George Eliot, are included here. Originally titled simply Cradle Song, this song was re-published by Metzler & Co., in 1876, retitled Little Darling Sleep Again. The third song, The First Departure, with words by Rev. E. Munroe, was also re-published in 1876 by Metzler & Co., with new words by Frederick E. Weatherley, as The Chorister.
