Songs My Mother Taught Me

Written in the year 1880, ‘Song My Mother Taught me’ is the fourth of seven songs from the Gypsy Songs, B. 104, Op.55 by Antonio Dvorak. A piece for voice and piano, it is set to the lyrics by German poet, Adolf Heyduk in both Czech and German. The lyrics go like this:

Songs my mother taught me, In the days long vanished;
Seldom from her eyelids were the teardrops banished.
Now I teach my children, each melodious measure.
Oft the tears are flowing, oft they flow from my memory's treasure.

Influenced by Bohemian Gypsy melodies, this song has achieved widespread fame. Conveying slight melancholy but also evoking feelings of optimism, this sentimental song speaks to universal feelings of love and affection towards our mother.
