Lullaby for Irish Pipes (unknown)

Lullaby for Irish Pipes first appears in a James Whiteside manuscript WAIFS AND STRAYS OF GAELIC MELODY. James Whiteside, the 'Bard of Bray', County Wicklow, Ireland was a genius—scholar, poet, musician, composer. Born in County Monaghan in 1844, he retired after 40 years service as a schoolteacher at Bray. The melody, passed down throughout the generations, does not have a definitively confirmed source.

Away in a Manger (1837)

Away in a Manger is a Christmas carol first published in the late nineteenth century and used widely throughout the English-speaking world. The first two verses of the lyrics were published in the May 1884 issue of The Myrtle, a periodical of the Universalist Publishing House in Boston, Massachussetts.
The article claims, under the heading "Luther's Cradle Song", that Martin Luther composed the following hymn for his children; and it is still sung by many German mothers to their little ones. However, this attribution appears to be false: the hymn is found nowhere among Luther's works. The third stanza, "Be near me, Lord Jesus" was first printed in Gabriel's Vineyard Songs (1892).

A number of melodies have been written for Away in a Manger over its history. The one most commonly printed in the U.S. is typically given the name "Mueller." The first half of the melody is identical to the beginning of the second theme of Waltz #4, transposed down a fourth, in G'schichten aus dem Wienerwald, Op. 325 by Johann Strauss Jr. The tune Cradle Song was written by William J. Kirkpatrick for the musical Around the World with Christmas (1895) and is an adaptation of the melody originally composed in 1837 by Jonathan E. Spilman to Sweet Afton. This is the version used for Legacy Christmas.
