music therapy - the lullaby

Ravel's Pavanne for a dead princess

This is a nice interpretation by a pianist I don't know. . . .

And this is the closest thing I can think of to a lullaby for a grown-up. (although you'd better be asleep before that last chord sounds, or it'll wake you up again!)

I listened to this over and over again when my official best friend's mother died. Years ago now. I don't really know why I love it so, or why it calms me.

I think I can sleep now.
