Review:
From the caressing father-to-child bossa nova song "Pro Nene Nanar (For Baby to Sleep)" and the exquisite Leo Brouwer guitar arrangement of the traditional Afro-Cuban "Drume Negrito" to Pepe Castillo’s achingly tender "A Dormir" and "Soneca," a Brazilian spin on "Snow White and the Seven Dwarves," this round-up of simply beautiful lullabies is for little ears, and big ears, too. Lulled and beguiled by singers and vocalists from Africa, Brazil, Cuba, Wales, Ireland and other countries, listeners are offered excerpts from Ellipsis’ four previous lullaby releases—"African Lullaby," "Latin Lullaby," "Celtic Lullaby," "Brazilian Lullaby"—in a well-considered sampler of global parental love and notable professional talent. It’s worlds away from the stresses and strains of busy modern life, something to treasure in the quiet times.
