Music gives Soul to the Universe, Wings to the Mind, Flight to the Imagination - Plato

When our daughter Meaghan was a baby I sang to her a lot. Knowing the melody to the iconic Brahms’s Lullaby (Cradle Song) but not the words, I simply made up my own. Many years later, when I found out that I was going to be a grandmother, I recorded several lullabies, including my version of the Brahms’s Lullaby. The words I sing in it say, “Mommy loves you, Daddy loves you,” because that was our family make-up. However, at the same time that my grandchild was due, a good friend was also about to become a grandmother to a baby born to lesbian parents. I realized that my version of this song didn’t fit every family, be the parents single, lesbian or gay. So, I recorded two additional versions; one with “Mommy” only and one with “Daddy” only. It is my hope that these lullabies, whichever you choose, will soothe the hearts of babies and parents alike.
