The Seal Maiden

Are you going on a road trip to the beach or somewhere far away?
Are you looking for something different from the regular genre of fast-paced music?
Here's a great CD I recently discovered with beautiful music for children and (adults).

Usually recorded music is not encouraged in the Waldorf tradition, but I would have to say that folk music or something that your grandmother would have sung in her traditional land is a wonderful thing. This is definitely better than what is on the radio for kids nowadays.
Most children's music insults the child's intelligence, is too silly and garish with unnatural instrumentation.
The Seal Maiden is more than just music, there is a narrative that blends the songs together seamlessly. If you are a fan of Celtic music and traditional pieces from Ireland, you will love this. If you like a good story and enjoy hearing peaceful and beautiful voices, you will find that Karan Casey's vocals and narrative will transfer you to the land of Silkies.

Happy Listening!
