For Book Lovers

With For Book Lovers, Decca's popular Lifetstyles series extends its embrace to bookworms, offering a program of familiar classics designed to provide a relaxing background to a good read. Ranging from Rachmaninoff's lyrical "Vocalise" to the home-spun "Simple Gifts" from Copland's Appalachian Spring, the album samples a variety of music. And with performances from artists like Daniel Barenboim and Julian Lloyd Webber, it's a bibliophile's delight indeed.

Great music that will relax you on a Sunday evening or on the drive to work. Great with a good cup of coffee, a little Irish Cream, and a Hemingway. Wow ... really good. A cool rainy day with For Book Lovers would be great!
