Catrin Finch - Lullabies

The Welsh harpist is joined by special guests for possibly the most relaxing album ever. Album of the Weekend, 13-14 July 2013.

This beautiful new CD is being marketed as an essential album for all new parents but it would certainly work for anyone of any age who is looking for the perfect way to be transported blissfully into slumberland.

Welsh harpist Catrin Finch has plucked tranquil favourites by Brahms, Schubert and Schumann from her repertoire, as well as music by today's star composers including Karl Jenkins. She's joined by a number of friends - including Bryn Terfel who sings the Brahms lullaby, cellist Julian Lloyd Webber who performs Eric Whitacre's Seal Lullaby with her, and Classic FM's own Aled Jones on the Welsh traditional, Ar Lan Y Môr - all of them beautifully and crisply recorded.
