Blissfull, melodic and captivating!!
We had ordered a selection of sale CDs, after listending to this one with our grandson (7 mos. old) we promptly ordered 5 more to give to people we know who either have infants or are in need of music that is magical. Our grandson usually fights nap time like a champ, but he was in peaceful slumber by the beginning of the second track!! Both my husband and I find it the best antedote to "one of those days" at work. A real gem - we highly recommend buying it, right now!!

Calming, peaceful, angelic music.

Beautiful, soothing music to quiet the mind and delight the soul!
As someone who always trys hard to keep her stress level from getting too overwhelming, I was totally unable to resist the sound clips for this cd, and bought a copy immediately! The music on this cd is truly gorgeous, melding lush harp with beautifully played flutes, cello and nature sounds, plus bells, chimes and triangle. I don't know how this would effect babies, but it's certainly relaxed me off to sleep on many a night, if that says anything! Finding music of this caliber is difficult, and I highly recommend it for anyone who wants to relax or clear their sacred space. It's also great for yoga, meditation, or, as I already said, to drift you off to sleep! Please, support this fantastic artist and her music! Simply beautiful! Bravo!
