The Secret Mountain

On Lullaby Berceuse: A Warm Prairie Night (The Secret Mountain), singing sisters-in-law Connie Kaldor and Carmen Campagne lure little ones to dreamland with their crisp, clear performances of beautiful bedtime tunes. In the CD’s accompanying book, Kaldor’s text (“Night’s blanket of stars will soon cover the sky / And the crickets will sing you a soft lullaby”) evokes sensory images. The title features Brian Deines’s soft, muted, and orange-tinged artwork which conveys the openess and vastness of the prairies. mRb
