Cantilena: Night Songs From Around the World


Cantilena, the new release by classical guitarist Hilary Field and vocalist Patrice O’Neill, offers an evocative palette of night songs and lullabies from around the world. Spanning the globe from Romania to Sweden, Japan, Ireland, and Argentina and beyond, the soothing multilingual vocals and rich musical arrangements highlight the lyrical and dynamic beauty of this music.

Cantilena, the follow up to the multi award winning Siente, also features the virtuoso acoustic duo Mike Marshall and Darol Anger, Grammy award winning English hornist Nancy Rumbel, as well as principal musicians from the Pacific NW Ballet and Seattle Symphony orchestras.

Cantilena is an Italian musical term for a smooth, flowing melodic line. These lyrical night songs and lullabies from world traditions and classical masters transcend generations, lending a blanket of calm in an often busy world.
