Hello friends. Today’s post is all about relaxation and a good night’s sleep! These four beautiful albums are filled with dreamy lullabies that are perfect for nighttime and quiet time (for both little ones and mums and dads as well). No matter what your taste in music, you are sure to appreciate the calming nature of these classic albums.
‘Til the Morning: Lullabies and Songs of Comfort by Edie Carey & Sarah Sample
This charming album won is both a Parents’ Choice Gold Awards and a NAPPA Gold Award winner. Edie and Sarah are well-recognized individual singer/songwriters who came together to create this duet album (the first children’s/family album for either of them) out of friendship and motherhood. The result is simply beautiful.
Laurie Berkner Lullabies by Laurie Berkner
Laurie is an award-winning children’s recording artist. Her debut DVD, which went quadruple platinum, was the first-ever indie children’s music DVD to enter Billboard’s Top Music Video chart at #1. Laurie’s album ‘Lullabies’ features a few well known traditional songs as well as a range of originals. I especially like ‘What is the colour of my dreams?’ and ‘Goodnight’.
Watching the Nighttime Come by Suz Slezak
This lovely album by Suz Slezak was released in February this year and is her first solo album. Suz is a vocalist and fiddle player, and is a core member of the award-winning indie folk ensemble David Wax Museum. David Wax is Suz’s husband, and they have a one-year-old daughter, Calliope. The title track is quite enchanting… take a listen.
Classical Lullabies by Brahms, Schubert, Satie, Debussy…
Soothing and entrancing melodies from beloved composers are collected in this hardbound book and CD set featuring whimsical, dream-like illustrations by Élodie Nouhen and music recorded in France with the acclaimed wind and harp quintet L’Ensemble Agora. I’ve been enjoying listening to this one through my headphones while I’m working… so serene. Check out the trailer below to see what I mean…
