Beijing Angelic Choir : Chinese Lullabies : 00  1 CD :  : 5013

Beijing Angelic Choir : Chinese Lullabies

Review: The Beijing Angelic Choir, composed of the best voices from several local choirs in Beijing, is distinguished by their sweet, superbly trained voices and musical training. Included are 12 songs: "You-you-zha," "Clear Moon, Quiet Winds," "Hammock Hanging Between Betel Trees," "Puyama Lullaby," "Tu-jia Lullaby," "A-ni-qie-er," "Kitty, Stop Meowing," "Li Lullaby," "Lullaby of the Fisherman's Family," "Tibetan Lullaby," "My Brother, Pu-ru-lai" and "A-lai, Ba-lang-mu." These songs are lightly accompanied, with emphasis, of course, on the singing of the children. The sound is dreamlike, sweet and soaring, almost other-worldly. We'd love to learn more about the beautiful, haunting lullabies, but most of the liner notes are in Chinese and we can only use our imagination. "Lullabies" was a finalist for the 1996 NAIRD award for the Best Children's Music, and is stunningly lovely CD!

Songlist: You-you-zha (Man), Clear Moon, Quiet Winds (Northeastern China), Hammock Hanging Beween Betel Trees (Guangdong), Puyuma Lullaby (Taiwan), Tu-jia Lullaby (Hunan), A-ni-qie-er (Hani tribe, Yunnan), Kitty, Stop Meowing (Anhul), Li Lullaby (Hainan), Lullaby of the Fisherman's Family (Guangxi), Tibetan Lullaby (Western Tibet), My Brother, Pu-ru-lai (Inner Mongolian), A-lai, Ba-lang-mu (Ulger)
