Notes & Reviews:

"There have been anthologies of lullabies before, but surely few that have ranged as widely as this one...Montserrat Figueras spins beautiful lines from exotic material" -Gramophone Magazine

"there's an other-worldly, timeless quality to the voice that seems to encapsulate that strange, semi-conscious place before deep sleep where anything is possible in the imagination...In fact the whole disc is spell-binding, from ancient Sephardic and middle-eastern tradition, through 16th century England to Pärt in 2002" -bbc.co.uk
