I bought this album simply because I love to listen to her sing. This CD is another well produced and superbly sung product. I have now decided that it is not a good one to play whilst driving though because it makes me too relaxed. For listening to after a hard day maybe to take away the stresses and strains. As with all of her albums it is a joy to listen to and I would recommend it to anyone.

On first listen I was immediately impressed by the intricate yet simple backing and Hayley's delicate close-miked vocals that make it sound almost as if she is there in the room with you. It is particularly impressive when played through a high quality sound system or good headphones.

My favourites? Well all of them really but Pretty Little Horses, Hushabye Mountain and When At Night (the evening prayer from the opera Hansel and Gretel) stand out for me. The final track Stay Awake is guaranteed to make you do the opposite if played late in the evening, it's possibly the most relaxing ending to an album that I've ever heard.

If you like Hayley or just like relaxing music, don't miss out on this album!

As I am a huge fan of Hayley's I was at first disappointed that she was releasing an album of lullabies as I thought that an album like this would not showcase her talents. However, while we do not see any of Hayley's songwriting skills on this album it does showcase her beautiful vocals and some stunning arrangements.

Hayley has a crystal clear voice, however the way she uses her voice on this album really stands out. Unlike her last album Paradiso where there was an orchestra and dramatic songs, Hushabye has intimate vocals as though Hayley were in the room singing to you. I love how she sings softly as this really suits the themes of the songs. The arrangements of these songs are the most beautiful I have ever heard, even songs which I thought I would dislike such as Twinkle, Twinkle, Stay Awake and Hushabye Mountain have become some of my favourites on the album.

Standout Tracks: The Pretty Little Horses, Go To Sleep, Dream a Little Dream, When at Night, Baby Mine.

Hushabye is not just a lullaby album for babies, it is really relaxing and soothing. Beautiful voice and beautiful songs to match, I had to give it 5 stars.

I got this CD for my daughter-in-law just before the arrival of my grandson. There was a track on it that captured the way I was feeling about the impending birth. A lovely voice with some lovely songs.

Hayley has a wonderful voice. Like many others, I was captivated by her early recordings.
Unfortunately the later CDs became increasingly over-produced and her voice was overwhelmed by instrumentation. I longed for a new release that would let her mature voice ring out.
This latest CD does just that - the backing stays in its proper place and her lovely voice comes forward. But the material is not of general appeal and is not what I have been hoping for. To be honest, I have only played it through twice and will probably never play it again.
Please can we have something more exciting next time?

My sister ordered this CD and I listened to it whilst at her house. I was pleasantly surprised as Hayley Westenra's voice seems to have matured and was very pleasant to listen to. If you want some relaxing music on then I would recommend this CD. My Mum and sister liked it as well.

This is my favourite CD so far from Hayley! It's great to hear the whole setting of "Twinkle, twinkle little star". It IS lullabies, so is meant to be relaxing and stay in gentle mode. I usually like a change of tempo and dynamics on a CD, but it would destroy the atmosphere in this case. No babies in the family at present, but everyone (adults) loves it. After listening we are totally calm and "chilled".

This is lovely. Her voice is delightful. We play it just before bed whilst feeding (we have 4 calming cd's of various themes), my 6 month old son loves Twinkle Twinkle Little Star at any time of day, so I put track 5 on repeat whilst he dozes off...
