This edition offered to you contains a 16-page booklet including notes for 14 lullabies from among those recorded on this disc.
This is not simply a nice title. This is really a collection of authentic folk lullabies. And undoubtedly, there are some people among us who know these lullabies since birth. But there are much more of those – and I have practically no doubt about that - for whom these lullabies will be a real discovery. If I am right after all, then it is rather sad. Still, it is not without a reason that there appear new discs like that, as well as new books and new research works, though their quantity is not big enough, as we want – as it deserves. Because all that should not be forgotten, it should not be lost. From such things a well-bred person starts. Of course, one might get by with a simple "aa-a", since in the first place a child takes not words, but feelings and emotions. Still, on the other hand, a lullaby should be the tenderest creation of verbal art, and it is exactly in a lullaby that any language of the world shows its inner secret beauty that cannot be found in the talks on policy or something else. And that’s why lullabies have to live longer than policy.
Unfortunately the quality of recording is not very good. We decided to present this CD on the web site because it may be interesting for many admirers of Ukrainian music.
