My apologies for posting late this morning. Our Internet service has gone wonky again, as happens all too often out here in rural Devon. It's a sleepy kind of morning, grey and still, so I'm matching nature's mood with a selection of gentle lullabys from around the world. These lovely songs all come from the Howard Assembly Room's Lullaby Project, featuring lullabys old and new.
Above, a Gaelic lullabye and song by Karine Polwart, from Scotland.

And last, to bring it all back home to the British Isles:
