Ukrainian folk tales and lullabies. Golden Collection.
We have already spoken about Ukrainian fairy tales and discussed what they are. It is a well-known fact that every nation has its fairy tales. Usually the older the tale is, the more clever it is, because in the course of the time all excess words get lost and only the essence is left. It especially concerns those fairy tales, in which the main characters are different animals and not people. Being very simple on the surface, they often bear several sense levels hidden in one another. As for me, fairy tales about people are more open. And it does not mean that they are more simple. They are just more open. I develop this idea so deeply because practically all fairy tales recorded at this disc are exactly old. Everybody knows them, but listen to them once more – may be, it is the experience, which you need now. Moreover, a lullaby sounds after each tale and these songs are extremely unusual and especial. Among the performers you can find both the trio "Lybid" and Nina Matviyenko. Besides, the tales are read very artistically – in a special way, as you might have heard them broadcast by the state radio in your childhood.

Kazkivnyk. Ukrainian folk tales.

Here you can find musical illustration and simply different sounds used for obviousness, as well as good performance, that is reading of the text. That is why it is very pleasant to listen to even well known tales. Even for grown-ups.

Olga Hura. Khodyt son... Ukrainian lullabies. (The Dream Walks By...)

These are, both, known and little-known folk lullabies, as well as authors' ones – and those composed based on music by other authors. Combined with the singer's soft vocal, the recording creates an incredible atmosphere of a fairy tale and peace, which is so needed by an infant for easy, pleasant falling sleep with enchanting sounds of lullabies.
