Delicate and soothing, this work is a lighthearted and loving celebration of childhood imagination and delight. Notable cuts include the title track, performed gently with a lullaby feel; "The Homecoming," awith its sweet, welcoming piano and yearning cello; and "The Cookie Jar, " a perfect depiction of a mischievous child. Performed on piano and synthesizers with the occasional addition of other instruments, The Child Within is a heart-touching remembrance of the best parts of childhood.
