Format: Audio CD
A lovely 2CD Classic FM compilation of relaxing music - for mothers as much as their babies - consisting of an interesting assortment of baroque, classical, romantic and modern music with the underlying theme of aiming to relax the listener.

Some pieces are chosen partly for their title as well as the soothing effect they have, these include the 'Lullaby' by Brahms and 'The Swan' from 'Carnival of the Animals' by Saint-Saens. The more contemporary offerings are by popular composers such as Patrick Hawes. These are good recordings, as expected by Classic FM, many of which will be comfortably familiar to most of the radio shows listeners.

Comfortably safe by Classic FM maybe, but comfortably relaxing too.

Bought this to help my boy snooze as he likes the classics. There are a couple of poor choices on the CDs, and crashing of cymbals isn't really what I was looking for. OK but wish I hadn't spent the cash.

This is the second version of this CD that I have bought. It worked for my daughter's children and lets hope it will work for my son's new daughter. It certainly works for me when I have to put them to bed.

As a musician I get very frustrated with the number of CDs for babies that only use keyboards, other electronic instruments and very bad singers! I realise that it is far cheaper to make a CD with only a few performers, but you can't beat real instruments and the sound produced by an full orchestra.
My baby gets so excited when I put on the playtime CD and waves his arms and legs in time to the music. He also finds the sleeptime one very relaxing and I often play it at bed time. I just wish Classic FM would do a CD of nursery rhymes and childrens songs, with real instruments and people who can actually sing!!

Im not a fan of classical music. I cant tell you if this is a great representation of the songs included.

I can say that the sleep CD works a treat with my child. That being said, you have to pick the songs. Even though theres a whole CD dedicated to "sleep", theres quite a few songs on there, which go from really quiet to really loud in an instant. Not brilliant for a baby thats just starting to drop off.

Im sure theres probably loads of classical CDs that contain the same songs, at half the price (or less), but im far too lazy to find them. So Im happy with my purchase.

I have listened to the CDs. The quality of the sound is not good. One tune is slow and then the next tune will play loudly and then the next one you can nearly hear. Very poor quality. It will startle a baby. I do not recommend this product even though the selection of tunes is fine.

I really like these CDs. I am a fan of classical music, but not familiar enough to be able to create my own sleep playlist with no dramatic changes in the dynamics of the music. For this reason, the sleep CD is particularly useful for soothing my wakeful toddler. The playtime CD is very jolly with a good mix of music.

From some of the other reviews, it seems like some purchasers haven't realised that two CDs have different purposes: sleep and playtime. There is definitely no crashing of cymbals on the sleep CD, although there is on the playtime one!

I'm a new mum, with a five week old baby...born 6 weeks premature, he tends to be a noisy and light sleeper. I have just received the CD in huge post from my mum for baby Hugo and have put it on in his room in time for his nap today. He has gone strait off to sleep and appears to be in deep sleep very quickly with no noise or flapping arms and legs (which the trends to disturb his sleep). It also plays quietly but clearly through the baby monitor....I'm finding myself very sleeping while updating here....I think it will be good for both of us to get some rest! A great present...thanks mum!!
