Listen to this piece of music. It belongs to “Berceuse de invierno” (“Winter Lullaby”), which is part of a longer work called “Musica para un jardin” (“Music for a garden”) by Joaquin Rodrigo and  contains three other lullabies: “Berceuse de otoño” (autumn lullaby), “Berceuse de primavera” (spring lullaby) and “Berceuse de verano” (summer lullaby).  

Afterwards, read what the composer himself said about this work:

“Under the title “Music for a garden”, I grouped the four lullabies that gently transform the four seasons of the year into a garden.  All four of them, although each is different, sway to the rhythm  of a cradle song that measures and separates the passage of time.

“Berceuse de invierno” (winter lullaby) is based on a ‘pedal’ or recurrent theme that the English horn gives a slightly pastoral character.  Over this ‘pedal’ the melody is heard played by the clarinet, resembling a Christmas carol, and later repeated by the celesta and finally by the violins and the woodwinds. “
