After a recent study emerged demonstrating the universally therapeutic and relaxing qualities of the traditional lullaby, New Zealand's own Hayley Westenra decided to lend the sonic purity of her own voice in order to create the ultimate stress-relieving album, ‘Hushabye’.
Hayley has performed regularly to royalty the world over, so has dedicated ‘Hushabye’ to the imminent arrival of the Royal Baby, with a track specially written by the “nation’s favourite living composer” Paul Mealor. Their Royal Highnesses The Duke & Duchess of Cambridge personally chose Mealor’s music for their wedding in 2011, so ‘Hushabye’ is the perfect accompanying gift to celebrate the Royal Couple’s new arrival.
Embraced by Hayley’s beautiful tones, ‘Hushabye’ contains a special selection of songs, clinically proven to calm and soothe listeners of all ages. Her voice is gently complimented by a carefully considered orchestration, with acoustic guitar, piano, flute and warm strings, creating an atmosphere of peace and tranquility. Listeners can expect bedtime favourites such as Hushabye Mountain and Twinkle Twinkle, alongside timeless classics that reach beyond the realm of lullabies, like Dream A Little Dream Of Me and All Through The Night.
