A perfect voice remind us that a mother's love transcends all cultures.
I originally bought this CD to contribute to a good cause. I was not prepared for the beauty of Courtenay's voice nor the quality of the overall recording and contribution of the supporting artists. My children and I listened to the CD on the way to ball practice one evening, and my daughter began to cry. When I asked her what was wrong, she said that the music reminded her of what it was like to be a baby. At 8 years old, I doubt she remembers that, but I thought to myself that lullabies do seem to recall something deep within all of us, regardless of the language, a longing to be loved and cared for in the unconditional way that only a mother can provide. This CD definitely recalls that sense of warmth and love for both children and adults.

What an awesome plethora of classical lullabies!
As a teacher and mother of young children, I am constantly searching for calming music to play as an alternative to the music most children hear frequently on the radio. I purchased this CD and have been tremedously pleased with the variety of lullabies and languages the artists sing with such clarity and precision. What a great way to introduce quality music to your children! I highly recommend this CD to any parent!

Alice & Joe Gore

Our grandchildren listen to this every night.
The songs are soothing and restful. The presentation by the artist is absolutely beautiful. She has a pure tone. Our grandchildren listen to this every night as they fall asleep. It is truly a lullaby CD.

No babies needed to enjoy this cd!
No babies needed to enjoy this cd! My children are grown and I purchased this for myself. What a joy it is to come home after a hard days work and relax to the soothing sounds of Sleep is Behind the Door. The artists do a fantastic job and the music is relaxing. The songs creep into your soul and settle the tiredest of minds. I have already recommended Sleep is Behind the Door to several of my friends who have new babies coming into their life. You can't go wrong with it. It is an added bonus that profits from the purchase go to disaster relief. It helps me to feel that I am making a difference in the world a little bit at a time. Get a copy for yourself. You won't regret it.

Sleep is Behind the Door
This is an amazing CD and I am thrilled to own it. My three children have listened to it several times and it is not just for night-night at our house--we like to play it during the day or in the car, etc. Just an amazing collection by a superb artist! Brava!

moved me to tears in every dimension of music
An amazing CD. Wonderfully eclectic. Quality of performance is stunningly beautiful: both voice and instrumentals. Sometimes I want to listen to it with every fiber of my being; yet sometimes it is so deeply poignant and beautiful that I cannot bear the intensity of the deep emotion. What an accomplishment!!

Tamara Turner, CD Baby


Without hesitation, we can confidently award this disc Lullaby Album of the Year. "Sleep is Behind the Door" features Grammy-winning classical musicians and the stunning, heart-melting and highly-acclaimed voice of classically-trained soprano, Courtenay Budd. Ranging from simple voice and piano duets to tenderly orchestrated chamber settings, drawing from cellos, violins, flute, clarinet, guitar and a choral ensemble, this hour of exquisite and precious international lullabies truly eases the heart and lulls the mind, working just as effectively on adults as it does with little ones. Centering around the classical art song form and varying from crystalline impressionistic styles to playful and simple folk-like songs, these 25 tracks sing, waltz and lilt their way into your fanciful thoughts and daydreams. With all profits going to aid victims of natural disasters, this disc brings ease and comfort in more ways than one.

My husband loves this CD!
My husband has only recently become a classical listener, so it is wonderful to see how he enjoys the entire ensemble on this CD!

Kathy

A beautifully moving CD for all ages!!!
My daughter absolutely loves the music on the CD and consistantly tells me she feels sleepy while listening! I even find her swaying to the different songs, as if she is lulling herself to sleep!
