Soothe: A Lullaby Collection

When my second child was born, I made this lullaby compilation made up of songs mostly not in English, because I found it maddening to endlessly listen to English-language lullabies while trying to get my first child to sleep. The compilation works very well as a lullaby compilation, and I also think it is quite listenable as a very gentle international compilation.
