An Armenian mother sings an impassioned lullaby to her child as they "sail away to the arms of America" to start life anew in the land of their dreams. So effective, so emotional that there won't be a dry eye in the house as the sculpted melody gracefully floats over an accompaniment suggestive of ocean waves. Highly musical and especially theatrical. A must have for every choir. Optional SoundTrax CD with cinematic imagery.
Recorded Acc. Available.
