Every Lullaby on this CD is arranged and performed with such EXCELLENCE; I have hungered to listen to it over and over again. I am amazed at the variety and entertainment value this tender and healing music has been to me as an ADULT. I’m inspired by it!

Absolutely relaxing and beautiful. Wonderful background music to have on while working as well as to help wind down at night. The arrangements are interesting and the harp and flute are perfect. This will be playing over and over in my house.
A 5+ Star CD**

This 5* CD is definitely one for your music library. I'm going to give it for newborn baby gifts, and give it to grandchildren for their bedtime "unwind and go-to-sleep" music! I've always loved Kurt Bestor and now to have his music performed with a flutist and harpist is simply a "piece of art"! I'm proud to say the harpist is my very own amazing harp teacher and I am so proud of her. She is a master performer and definitely has the gift of teaching and performing! Way to rock, Julie! (These are all my favorite lullabies!)
Very peaceful! Beautifully done!

Peaceful & relaxed... even at the dentist!
by Bette - reviewed on December 09, 2011
There is something celestial about the combination of harp and flute and this CD takes you to a relaxed, peaceful place. I recently tested its effectiveness as I spent 4 1/2 hours in a dental chair listening to this CD. I was relaxed and peaceful, so I know it can take you to a higher plane in any situation. I love this CD!

I absolutely LOVE this CD. It has brought such a calm spirit into our home. I use it every day when I put my son to sleep. I'm so impressed with the beautiful and peaceful arrangements and would definitely recommend this to anyone, with or without children.
Peaceful, easy listening
by Darlene - reviewed on December 08, 2011
This CD has beautiful flute and harp pieces. The arrangements are very nice -- Kurt Bestor no less. There is just enough variation on the melodies to add interest, with enough flourishes to spice it up, and some nice back and forth melody sharing between the flute and harp. Very nicely done with flute and harp balancing and complimenting one another -- never overpowering each other. I wanted it to be longer. It was over before I knew it!! You'll love playing it over and over again.

Your CD sounds great. The songs are beautiful. Perfect for kids to fall asleep to. I love the cover of it too. Really beautiful!
My toddler fell asleep to this today
by Jessica - reviewed on December 08, 2011
And then he proceeded to have one of the most restful naps he's had in a long time. I have started to dread nap time recently, because my almost-two-year-old son now has the stamina to stand in his crib and cry for the better part of an hour. But today was different. Today I turned on "All Through the Night" just as I laid him down. I covered him with his blanked, walked out of the room, shut the door, waited. Nothing. No crying. And he never did cry. He just fell asleep and then slept for over 2 hours for the first time in who knows how long. Now I would never be one to overgeneralize that this CD calms down all fussy babies everywhere. But for me, it worked a small miracle this very afternoon. I'd give it more than 5 stars if I could.

We just brought home a new baby, and have had the All Through the Night CD playing for her since she came home. It is remarkable how peaceful the entire house seems while the music is playing, and our whole family is enjoying the familiar songs.

My daughters loved this CD! They were dancing around our living room like ballerinas the first time we listened to it. They also enjoy listening to it when they go to sleep. The music on the CD is amazing! I would highly recommend this CD.
