NOW I LAY ME DOWN TO SLEEP

An Album of Classical Lullabies

Here’s one of the best collections of classical music for children I’ve ever heard.  The pieces are played by two well-trained musicians who beautifully accompany each other in their duets on guitar and violin.  The arrangements are simplified so that young ears (and old) can focus on the lovely melodies.  The soothing style encourages restful imagery and possibly induces the listener to relax to the point of sleep, hence the title. 

 

However, the music is not just for putting young ones to sleep.  It is simply great listening.  The combination of guitar and violin is so appealing because of it’s simplicity and clean sounds.  I especially enjoyed this CD because there were no distractions with orchestra instruments to burden the music.  The arrangements are very appealing and the choice of selections superb.  The pieces range from the traditional Brahams’ lullaby to George Gershwin’s Summertime and Grieg’s Berceuse. 

 

Each classical piece is whittled down to an easy listening time of about two minutes or less – perfect for young ears and attention spans.  Adults, particularly those unfamiliar with these classical pieces, will find this CD an excellent introduction to the music.

 

I highly recommend this CD.  It will make an excellent addition to any collection.
