Healing Music Sampler
Dr. Alice Cash presents
a sampler of three different types of healing music:
you're new to healing music, this is probably the perfect first CD for
you. Not only do you get three separate and varied genres of
healing music: lullabies, Alzheimer's patients' music, and
chanting, but you get a spoken introduction to each section by Dr. Cash.
Following a short overview of healing music, this CD introduces music
for Alzheimer's patients followed with lullabies for mother - baby
bonding and ending the CD with an introduction and 3 examples of
For the Alzheimer's patient, music is
often one of the few things left that can still be enjoyed and
remembered. For reasons that we don't completely understand, the
pathway in the brain that leads to musical memory remains free and open
and accessible. Long after Alzheimer's patients can no longer
remember their families and surroundings and their past, they can still
often recognize music from their own courting years and their
childhoods. On this CD I have chosen music that was popular from
1900-1950 and likely would be remembered by an Alzheimer's patient in
2010. Listen to the samples and see what you think!
The lullaby is a traditional and
powerful way of soothing a newborn or infant who is crying, fussy, and
discontent. Oftentimes, singing a lullaby will stop the crying and
help them to settle down enough to drift off to sleep. Lullabies
exist in every culture and have existed for thousands of years.
These are a few of my favorites with the lyrics included.
Chanting has become very popular around
the world, especially when combined with drumming but also when done
alone. Chant bonds people together and makes them feel part of a
greater, more meaningful whole. Chant is a way of saying what you
believe, through rhythm and melody, for the purpose of connecting with
other like-minded people to create a better present and future.
The chants on this CD are mostly from the Native American and Goddess
tradition but there is also a chant from Mozart.
For under $20, this is quite a deal!
