Synopsis

Product Description
The Beijing Angelic Choir, composed of the best voices from several local choirs in Beijing, is distinguished by their sweet, superbly trained voices and musical training. The songs are lightly accompanied, with emphasis, of course, on the singing of the children. The sound is dreamlike, sweet and soaring, almost other-worldly.Lullabies was a finalist for the 1996 NAIRD award for the Best Children's Music, and is a stunningly lovely CD!

CD Reviews

Outstanding!
Bob From Springfield | Springfield, OH USA | 10/06/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a gorgeous and mesmerizing CD! It doesn't matter if you understand Chinese or not, the hypnotic effect of the choir transcends any language. The music is minimalist and wisely so; allowing the beauty of the Beijing Angelic Choir (a fitting name, by the way!) to take center stage. The only slight criticism I can make is that the CD might be a bit repetitive for some tastes. However, I love it. At the very least, it is great "background" music for studying, painting, or just relaxing. At the most, it makes for some of the best music I've heard for some time."
Beautiful music for babies and parents

"We played this CD during my labor and it was incredibly soothing. Our son falls asleep to this CD every time we play it and it works well to calm him during bathtime or in the car. We liked it so much we purchased another copy for him to listen to while at day care and I think the familiar and relaxing music helps to ease his transition into his day there. We have quite a lullaby collection (African Lullaby, Brazilian Lullaby, Mediterranean Lullaby, Irish Lullaby, World Music for Little Ears and Chinese Lullabies) and we love them all, but this is our favorite--it's absolutely beautiful music."
Soothing

"My daughter has been falling asleep to this CD every night since I adopted in her from China over 2 years ago. It is beautiful and soothing. We're not tired of it, though it is our cue to go to sleep!"
