Ma Pickaninny Babe is a lovely little lullaby full of the usual ugly threats regarding the night's horrors should the beloved infant fail to lower his or her eyelids at the bidding of their materfamilias. The editor has always been puzzled and confused by the fact that all culture's share the view in finding that it necessary to frighten the living daylights out of their offspring to ensure a good night's kip! Being an all bass and tenor affair, this recorder adaptation greatly benefits from being accompanied by a singer.
Ma Pickaninny Babe was published by F.J.A. Forster Music Publisher, Chicago, Illinois, USA.
