What would Brahms think?

Here at Scottsdale Osborn, the PA system floats out ‘Brahms’ Lullaby’ whenever a baby is born. I’ve heard it on Nephrology (2nd floor), Orthopedics (6th floor) and even, at the beginning of my mess, in the ER. Written more than 140 years ago, before the age of mass communications and electronics, I wonder what Brahms might make of it all. I hope he would be pleased. Of course there are no royalties, but the ability to pipe the song en masse to announce the entry of new life into the world should provide enough satisfaction. And it just wouldn’t have the same effect in Morse Code. Brahm\’s Lullaby (Cradle Song)
