ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Within You (Lullaby for Bobby) is a track we made for Bobby Resciniti, who is one of several wonderful new children that have been born into my family. I couldn't figure out what gift to send for his first birthday and decided to make a piece for him.
At the studio we passed around his picture so we could be playing music to him as if in person.
I'm happy how the track turned out with flute, guitar, and grand piano. It is a new arrangement of a previous composition, Within You, originally recorded with Joseph Hebert on cello, in 4/4 time. In the new arrangement we play in 3/4 , somewhat of a lulling feeling, and we improvise over descending lines which bring to life various scales from distant times and lands.
My cousin Bob is Bobby's grandfather and is working on a family tree. One thing that inspired the flavorful harmonies in the song is the photo of Bobby's parents, and his last name.
I look forward to making more lullabies and hope all the parents, grandparents, and babies/ children will experience peace within themselves when listening.

Indeed this is a melodic sanctuary! It lifts us over the cares of life into a haven of peace. Surprising us with an "Amazing Grace" unlike any I had ever heard--a relaxed grace, confident of personal harmony--their CD proceeds to calm a busy spirit, nourish a tired soul. I’m sending this CD to my daughter and her husband. Their babies are often reluctant to rest and they wake them in the middle of the night. Thanks so much to Collins and Hebert for marketing tranquility!

I received this CD as a gift during Lent from a member of my parish. I put it on while working on that weeks sermon and service. It became my main source of music during the Lenten/Easter period.It was at times soothing when my mind was wrestling
with a sermon and at times inspirational for the same reason. It is beautiful music/timeless and for all seasons. I recommend it without reservation. My thanks to the one who gave this beautiful gift to me.Rev. Heather Cherrey
