Overview

Twila Paris is one of those rare singers who refuses to be defined by her sugar-sweet vocal stylings. She pushed her fragile voice into power pop with 1994's "God Is in Control" and earned a Dove Award for her efforts. On 1996's Where I Stand, she rode the female singer-songwriter wave spawned by Sarah McLachlan and Co., turning in one of the finest albums of her 20-year career. Now, in time for the birth of her first child, Paris releases a collection of lullabies. Bedtime Prayers & Peaceful Worship is a gentle album of love, peace, and quietude. Paris's delicate delivery is the perfect adornment to these 12 soothing songs, beautifully produced by John Hartley (who was behind Sparrow's stellar Heaven & Earth event). While promotional materials for Bedtime Prayers target "new families," this album is a nice listen for anyone needing respite from the stresses of the day. Sometimes, a little dose of peaceful music is just what the doctor ordered.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Ashleigh Kittle
While singer and songwriter Twila Paris' albums have employed musical styles ranging from inspirational hymns to adult contemporary songs, each project has targeted a broad audience and not catered to any particular group. However, with Bedtime Prayers: Lullabies and Peaceful Worship, Paris has specifically geared the album toward new mothers and young children. Her aim being to assist parents in teaching their children Biblically based foundational truths that can be carried with them the rest of their lives. The album is beautifully orchestrated, featuring Paris' trademark piano melodies paired with moderate tempos and the vocal vulnerability present on all she sings. Musically, it best reflects a blending of inspirational praise and worship with the gentle, soothing style associated with lullabies. The album's lyrics are poetically crafted, yet also simplified in an effort to make the songs' messages assessable to small children. Definite highlights include the song "Your Whole Life Long," which is a parent's prayer for their child, and "There Is Only One," reminding children of their uniqueness.

My daughter received this as a gift when our granddaughter was born. From her first day home this cd was played anytime our granddaughter went to sleep. She is now 4 years old and still listens to this when she goes to sleep. It is a perfect cd with beautiful music and words. We all love to listen to it.
