Product Notes

The idea for arranging 24 LULLABIES & FOLK SONGS grew out of Barbara Becker's years of teaching classroom music, and her enthusiasm for children being exposed to the wonderful world of folk music - so rich, varied and plentiful. One day in July of 2005 she realized she wished to leave, as her legacy, arrangements of some of these songs. Two years later, she completed the arrangements of 24 LULLABIES & FOLK SONGS. Some are American, some are from abroad. Long ago, families would gather around the dining room table and sing madrigals by candlelight! It is time to rekindle that tradition and make music the center of family entertainment. With it's healing and spiritual qualities, it brings everyone together through rounds, part singing and unison songs. Even the youngest child glows when his/her voice is added to the beauty of song. BARBARA BECKER'S musical talent became evident at age four when she spontaneously began playing by ear, improvising and arranging nursery tunes on the piano. She is an award-winning, commissioned composer, published by Neil A. Kjos Music Company and Barbara Becker Publications. She is composer-in-residence for the Contra Costa chapter of Music Teachers' Association of California and the columnist on improvisation for it's state magazine. Her compositions include teaching and recital pieces, rags, songs, and chamber and choral music. She has arranged and written Jewish music as well as arrangements for four books of traditional Christmas music. She maintains an active teaching studio in the San Francisco Bay Area. 'Innovative harmonies bring a fresh perspective to these time honored folk songs and lullabies.' 'Barbara Becker's delightful and contemporary rendition of familiar folk songs is both charming and new.' 'Whatever Barbara Becker writes, I hear Francois Poulenc. I do believe he has left his legacy to her.' 'These exquisite arrangements of very, simple songs have a new life because of Barbara Becker's rich, colorful and gift for the unexpected harmonies.' 'Great CD! That is a beautiful voice. Terrific combination of voice and piano with delightful, refreshing arrangements. '
