Best nursery rhyme cds?
December 13, 2012 11:02 AM   Subscribe

What are some nursery rhyme compilations that are top-notch, musically speaking?

My lovely sister had a baby and is requesting CDs of baby songs, especially traditional nursery rhymes and lullabies.

I have a few of the Wee Sing collections, which are okay, but often feature squeaky, off-key kids' voices. She's a highly accomplished musician, and so I'd like to give her a few discs of professional-sounding music. It can be kids or adults singing, but GOOD kids or adults singing. I'm leaning more towards traditional arrangements than modern interpretations.

Musically-inclined Mefites, what are your favorite nursery rhyme CDs?

Haven't heard it myself, but Celine Dion's Miracle might work.

We really enjoy the Disney Children's favorites found here. There's also a second volume. I love the man's voice who sings.

Also, this disc of lullabies is wonderful.

I have really enjoyed Elizabeth Mitchell's music, including her work with Lisa Loeb.
