The "Songs without Words" (or "Lieder ohne Worte") were short piano pieces composed by Felix Mendelssohn, and in total he wrote 48 Songs Without Words in 8 sets of 6 published regularly throughout his tragically short life as a composer. The song titles were added later by publishers rather than by the composer himself. This piece is the 34th overall, catalogued as Op. 67 no. 4. It is one of the most popular in the collection and has been given two different names by different publishers, either "Spinning Song" or "The Bee's Wedding".
