Little Star Lullabies from Manor House Music
Composer and musician Vaughan Jones has released a new album of relaxing, soothing music to help calm babies and children. Vaughan was unhappy that many ‘relaxation’ albums geared towards little ones often used artificial instruments and relied heavily on synthesisers, which would never allow children’s ears to become acclimatised to the natural vibrations, warmth and subtle harmonies inherent in real instruments played with a human touch.
Like his other album ‘Music for Healing, Relaxation and Massage’ , ‘Little Star Lullabies’ is written for and recorded by a string orchestra, with other live instruments such as recorders, flutes and piano. 'Little Star Lullabies’ is a collection of eight pieces of specially composed, soothing music to help promote relaxation and sleep for babies and children – although several parents have commented that it works well for adults too! Each track provides a reassuring ambience so that babies and children can feel comforted.
Three of the tracks on the album ‘Twinkle Twinkle Little Star’, ‘Greenwood’ and ‘Suo Gan (Sleep My Baby)’ are based on arrangements of traditional pieces, whereas the other five pieces entitled ‘The Stars Come Out To Say Goodnight’, ‘Cradle Song’, ‘Gondola Song’, ‘Berceuse’ and ‘Across the Milky Way’ are original compositions. The album flows gently from one piece to the next and initial feedback from parents and children has been very positive.

The 'Music for Healing, Relaxation & Massage' Album
The perfect accompaniment for therapies such as Reiki, Aromatherapy, Massage, Reflexology or Shiatsu. This is an album of relaxing, orchestral music, specially composed to promote meditation, harmony and a feeling of calm. Featuring 12 timed, 5 minute tracks it provides the perfect accompaniment for therapies such as Reiki, Aromatherapy, Massage, Reflexology or Shiatsu - helping the listener to achieve a state of calm, promoting deep relaxation.
Composed by Vaughan Jones and performed by a live orchestra, 'Music For Healing' provides a refreshing change from many other New Age or inspirational music by using real instruments. The music is expertly performed by an ensemble of English classical musicians, including a string orchestra, oboes, flutes and cor anglais.
Live instruments give the album an array of sounds which inspire the listener with their freshness. The music has been written so that the individual strands of melody all vibrate with one another to allow the rich harmonies to resonate. Music for Healing provides an ideal ambiance to help people relax and unwind in yoga classes, Spas and therapy clinics, or can simply be enjoyed within the home as an aid to promoting calm tranquility and relaxation.
