A Collection of Lullabies

   Angelic slumber. There are few things sweeter than a young child sleeping peacefully. I offer this recording of lullabies to parents and grandparents to help them connect with their little ones through music. 
   When my son was young, I sang to him all the time. It just feels natural to sing to babies to soothe them or guide them to slumber. From the time he was only a few months old, I began making up lullabies, most to the rhythm of our rocking chair, as I savored the sweetness of quiet moments with him. Some of the songs I made up for him were one-timers, just drifting out and away as we rocked. But some of the songs I made up returned to me again and again, insisting to become the kinds of songs you can learn and teach. I selected my seven favorite of these for this CD. Altogether there are 9 songs (the other two are traditionals). This album was released in December 2012. 
   Please explore these pages to learn more about Twilight Comes Tiptoeing. I hope that you'll find something in this music that will speak to your heart, and to your children's hearts too.

   "This lovely addition to the lullaby shelf is balm for all ages (adults, too). Singer/songwriter and early education music teacher Ginger Parish has crafted each song with a fine musician's skill and a gentle lyrical touch. . .”

   “Your son’s voice is just so precious!! … I am so impressed with the diversity of songs and instruments played on the CD. I have given a couple of the CDs out as Christmas presents to people with small children, emphasizing it is beautiful music adults will enjoy as well.”               

                                                        ~ Erica C, Santa Rosa, CA

   “Thank you! It's beautiful. We can't stop listening to it! Wow!!!”                   

                                                        ~ Jenny K, Santa Rosa, CA

   "My kids and I love this cd! They ask to listen to it in the car, in fact we had a month where it was just about all they wanted to hear. Now they like to sing some of the songs to me at night! A treasure for sure. Ginger's lyrics are lovely, melodies dreamy and music pleasurable. You won't regret buying it, in fact I'm giving them as gifts now."

                                                        ~ Anne L., Cotati, CA

   "I love this CD. The songs are full of heart, calming & fun to sing! Singing "Close Your Eyes" to my 1 yr old energetic daughter seems to always result in heavy eyelids... it's like magic! And a valuable tool for car rides & road trips. The artist wrote many of the songs for her own baby-child and the love, sweetness & caring is just right there. If you love to sing, these are some creative, simple tunes to add to your family's repertoire. Sweet dreamzzzz

                                                        ~ Jen B, Sebastopol, CA

   “Wow, that’s beautiful. Where’s it coming from?” our five year-old son asked the first time we played this album. Well, yes, the speakers. But the gorgeous songs on this cd, and the pictures and story on its case give a much better answer. These songs come from love. Love for our children, love for the Earth and our time here on it, love for music – so deep that we pass it from generation to generation. My kids are enchanted by the child who inspired these songs, pictured as an infant, a boy about their age, and as the twelve year-old whose still-high voice invites with beautiful and unequaled authority, 'Close your eyes. It’s time to go to sleep.'  "

                                                         ~ Larry K, Oakland, CA

   "As a mother to an Autistic child with sensory issues, I found Ginger's music works miracles for my son. When the world overwhelms him he finds such comfort in Ginger's music, It is such a blessing! I brought this CD to Yoga class and the women LOVED IT. We are all children at heart and this music nurtures mine. Thank you Ginger!"

                                                          ~ Cheri D, Boardman, OH

   “Ginger’s resonant voice has an emotional quality that reaches deep...This album’s songs are easily remembered...and provide that special experience to build a heartfelt connection with your child.”
