A Trumpeter's Lullaby

This will be our response to violence: to make music more intensely, more beautifully and more devotedly than ever before.
~Leonard Bernstein

This song, composed by Leroy Anderson and performed by Wynton Marsalis, is a lullaby, but I think it makes a nice ease-into-your-morning song as well.

A bit of Leroy Anderson trivia: Anderson was fluent in English, Swedish, Danish, Norwegian, Icelandic, German, French, Italian, and Portuguese.

Also, Leroy Anderson composed Sleigh Ride (a favorite of mine!).

Lovely piece of music, and I can hear bits of Sleigh Ride in it as well.

I'd probably use it as a post-nap piece, too.
