Synopsis

Amazon.com
With deftness and pristine, delicate beauty, Dreamscape smudges the line between lullabies and classical works in the world of music for kids. Sure, there are other, wonderful classical lullaby collections, but Dreamscape reaches beyond the classical repertoire while staying faithful to a chamber-music-meets-art-song approach. Heidi Grant Murphy sings with an enticing mix of the standard soprano's range and a gentleness that's in good keeping with the spirit of these works. Meanwhile, Auréole offers viola, flute, and harp accompaniment, subtle enough not to steal away from Grant Murphy and assertive enough to cultivate their own, sweet sonic space. The tunes originate in Crete, the Celtic world, Hungary, and France, and with the Native American Indian Hopi. While this likely won't draw kids in with musical exuberance, it'll certainly be an evening and naptime treat for all, perfectly in line with its intentions. --Andrew Bartlett

CD Reviews

Gloriously beautiful singing, celestial flute viola harp
09/08/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Heidi Grant Murphy and Auréole are a glorious combo, heavenly voice and stellar musicianship. Beautiful arrangements of some favorite lullabies and new ones from around the globe. I love the sweet "Where Do You sleep,"Bill Mayer's cute "Zoom-bah," the extraordinarily aethereal "Lullabye of Crete" and "Hommage åa B.B.", Richard Rodney Bennet's sensuous, "Sleep Baby Don't Cry" and the very touching Yiddish lullaby, "Ver Hot aza Yingele" arranged by David Spear. Bravo Heidi and the musicians. Last Christmas I had the divine pleasure of seeing them perform together at the Metropolitan Museum of art. Bravo Koch Int'l Classics. And by the way, it's not just me who loves this CD, my son does too. But I had to find this listing in Amazon.com's classical section, but I started looking in kids and by title and neither worked."
Magical blend
