In many ways, this is the recording most close to my heart. Here, I could recreate and actually play the piano for the romantic repertoire I love so well. This recording also proved beyond a doubt something I have always believed about children: they are expressive, gifted, deep people and we should never talk down to them. On a whim, I went into a junior school and had the children write poetry to Vivaldi's Piccolo Concerto. My only words: "Here we have a high, high piccolo and a low string pad. Write about a magic space in between." The kids wrote for a while, then insisted on reading their words aloud over the music. Even the guinea pig fell silent as their extraordinary words poured into that classroom. This recording is a testament to the talents of children everywhere. It is also a chance for parents to sing with their kids the rounds they sang around the campfire: Dona Nobis Pacem, Hey Ho Nobody Home etc. The last track on Daydreams and Lullabies is my favorite from the entire series: Pachelbel's Canon, overlaid with almost all the melodies which have gone before: serene, radiant, warm, and affirming that there is a kinder gentler universe somewhere. Probably our children are closer to it than we are. Susan Hammond, Classical Kids producer --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
Came on time, for a baby shower. It is a cd I know, loved and used with my kids.
Nice to pass it on to a new young mother.
Thanks for shipping so quickly.
I love this. It's actually a little slice of my happiest, most peaceful childhood moments. It's soothing, comforting and one of my favorite CDs.Published on Feb. 19 2001
