The universality of lullabies is celebrated with this exploration of melodies from around the globe. While many are appropriately soothing and sweet, they're by no means uniform in their sounds, idioms and instrumental resources. Selections include Chanticleer's "Colors of Love," Meredith Monk's "Dolmen Music," Anna-Kaisa Liedes's "Sandaran Laulu," Last Forever's "All For You," and Deep Forest's "Sweet Lullaby."
