franz&fieldSiente: Night Songs from Around the World

Lullabies are love songs sung to children and passed on through generations. In this collection, some lyrics are in their native languages and dialects, some are in English, and some songs are presented without words as instrumentals. Some lyrics are simply comfort sounds that do not have an English translation. As the songs are passed down and shared through time, personal variations in the music and words develop. We hope that these beautiful melodies bring a sense of calm and peace to listeners of all ages. - Hilary & Patrice
