Lullabies, Laments, and Calming Classics


This new book from Lorinda Jones is perfect to take with you when you get that phone call the night before the memorial service, or weekly engagements on the Hospice unit, or any place and time you need quiet, reverent music.

Lullabies are collected from around the world, laments from Ireland and Scotland and familiar tunes from the well-known classical composers.

Some arrangements are very light and simply arranged for easy sight reading, others may require time to get performance ready.  

 "I was asked to play at a funeral visitation last night.  I picked up this book and played for 2 hours."  What a resource.

"Hi Lorinda,

Just a quick note to let you know that the music book arrived and to also tell you how much I have been enjoying it!

I really like how you have it organized and your selections are great.

Thank you for the extra effort it took to get this to me, I really appreciate it.
