When I had my first baby I bought Lullaby by Sophie Barker and listening to the opening bars of the record still takes me back to the first months of Motherhood. I was reminded of it when reading about the campaign to Save the Lullaby on Noble Savage.
Lullaby is a collection of traditional nursery songs and rhymes sung by Sophie Barker of Zero 7. Her gentle voice and the melodic arrangements of the songs make for a very relaxing listen.Â The whole effect isÂ could be described as the audio version of being gently buffed by cotton woolÂ which is far from the obnoxious strains of many nursery rhyme recordings. Traditional rhymes and songs are central to early language development and the curriculum and this record is a lovely way to introduce them into your home. I have dug out my copy and spent a dreamy hour singing songs with my son.
