ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Kathi & Milenko, Nancy Rumbel, with Katya & Anya Matanovič

GOOD MORNING, GOOD NIGHT
musical poems for children and parents – Volume 1
1988 Parent’s Choice Award

This recording was made in 1987 and became an instant classic. It has been re-released because the children who listened to these songs became parents and wished to share them with their own children. The songs are performed by singing duo Kathi & Milenko Matanovič, their daughters Katya and Anya (who were eight and six at the time), and woodwind instrumentalist Nancy Rumbel, along with friends. They can be enjoyed by children and parents alike. Milenko’s music gives new life to classical poems by Robert Louis Stevenson, William Blake, Rachel Field, Emily Bronte, Rudyard Kipling, William Wordsworth and others. The collection starts with songs with livelier tempos and daytime themes and ends with songs for the quieting times, with music chosen to summon children to their dreams. Recorded by Brian Ziegler. Cover art by Lou Halligan.

“In this album, the genre of songs for children reaches new heights.” Kathleen Zorn, Heartsong Review

Thank You
I have been looking for this recording ever since my cassette disappeared a few years ago. This is the best piece of children's music I have ever listened to. I'm reuniting with old friends and will be passing it on to many children.
