This CD has some of the most haunting and lovely melodies from around the world I've had the privilege to hear. Many of the lullabyes have a vocal component, the lyrics are often in a foreign language. Perfect to help soothe a fussy little one and expose them to something other than Twinkle Twinkle and Rock A Bye Baby. I especially appreciated the fact that the songs were gathered from a variety of countries (admittedly with an emphasis on western European countries) and sung in a variety of languages. I used this with my youngest child, and learned the Gaelic lyrics to one song well enough to sing it to her on my own. She still likes to listen to the CD. If you're looking for something that features songs a little off the beaten track for your infant, this CD is well worth the money!
