Music is very important to us here at GGC Headquarters. Archer falls asleep to music, plays to music, eats to music, plays his baby piano to music. Before Archer was born, I bought The Innocence Mission's newest record, Now the Day is Over, looking forward to playing it for little Archer or Colette. (We didn't know what we were having yet) when he/she was born.
I have been a fan of The innocence Mission since puchasing Birds of my Neighborhood in 1999 and am still as in love with every song they produce. Now the Day is Over is a collection of lullabies, both standard and original that Karen Peris (vocalist, pianist) and her husband, Don Peris (guitarist) sing to their children. Disc includes Mancini's Moon River, my all time favorite song since I was a child, What a Wonderful World, Edelweiss, Over the Rainbow and other melodies perfect for sleepy-heads and turning wakey-heads into sleepy-heads.
Portions of the proceeds benefit orphaned children in Africa so besides being an essential in your child's lulla-brary, it is the perfect gift for yourself and CBH's to be.
