In 1993, Anne
visit our daughter, Jenn in North Carolina. Jenn was pregnant with
twins and wanted Anne to come and visit before the pregnancy immobilized
her. Anne was only there for a day before Jenn complained of back
pains. They were soon in the hospital, and with
the help of good medical people, her delivery was delayed a couple of
days so they could prepare Alyshia and Jessup (twins) for delivery at 26
They were 1# 6 oz. each at birth and
spent the first couple of months living in their little isolettes hooked
up to all sorts of tubes and monitors. Slightly longer than a Bic
pen, they looked like little mice in their vulnerability. One of
the nurses said some taped music might be of help to soothe their
premature entrance into this world.
So, with that in mind, we selected some of
our favorite gentle pieces, recorded them and shipped them off to the
twins. They will be celebrating their 13th year next February.
Jessup plays the baritone and Alyshia is a clarinetist.
The cover photo on this recording features
Jenn with the twins attempting to "lullaby" them asleep.
Dad was in the picture too, but unfortunately, it was just too busy.
So in the interest of marketing, and with the magic of the computer, his
image was removed (with his permission). By the way, he played a
very important role in the early years for these kids.
This recording can make the ideal gift for
expectant parents. Perhaps you know someone (all ages) in need of a little
soothing. It was dedicated to the hope that all mankind may sleep
peacefully, "All Thru the Night"
Our forte has always been "gentle
music". It probably comes from the many years we have spent
assisting others in learning relaxation and stress reduction skills.
So we were right at home when we recorded these selections.
We felt that you couldn't have a
lullaby recording without some vocals. So we asked two of our very
favorite musicians to join us.

at Alma College here in Central Michigan. His choirs are
