I love having soothing music playing in the background during the day while we study. Some of my favorite albums are soundtracks from films- they make great “mood music” for any day. This is by no means an all-inclusive list, but here are a few suggestions:
Anne of Green Gables soundtrack- Hagood Hardy
Pride and Prejudice- Carl Daivs
Pride and Prejudice- Jean-Yves Thibaudet
Emma- Rachel Portman
Sense and Sensibility- Patrick Doyle
Closer- Joshua Groban * (How romantic!) We also love the tracks Weeping, You are loved, and The Prayer ( with Charlotte Church).
Amazing Grace, Everytime I look at you, and I believe in you- Il Divo *Talk about divine voices! Wow!
Michael Buble’- My boys and I love almost everything Michael Buble’ has done. Our favorite tracks are Everything, Save the Last Dance, and Haven’t Met You Yet!
Celtic Woman- One World- Celtic Woman (The Christmas albums are wonderful, too, but this is my favorite of their songs.)
The Swan- Saint Saens
Enchanted Christmas- Anna Maria Mendieta *This is an instrumental album done on the harp. I think it is stunningly beautiful. I listen to it on Sundays year-round.
Pachelbel’s Cannon in D
Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring- Bach * I can listen to this over and over againg without tiring. A few different versions make the song feel eternally new and rejuvenating to me.
