“Husband and wife team Eric and Susan Davis offer up a selection of Classical Lullabies written by Brahms, Tchaikovsky and other composers beautifully arranged for guitar and violin. Parents will be thrilled to find this combination of classical music that we know stimulates a child's brain cloaked in entrancing melodies that soothe your child to sleep. Although you won't find the traditional children's prayer of it's title on the CD, the prayer lives in every note of the songs on this beautiful compact Disc and will have you and your baby asleep in no time. Sweet Dreams!”
~ Leslie Clemmons, Singer/Songwriter

"I highly recommend this album for young parents with children, for grandparents who love having those childhood sleep-overs. Or for middle-aged folks like me who just want a nice tune to drift off to."
