And for the newborn Royal Twins, a delightful piano lullaby (turn the volume down between about 5:00 and 6:30)

 

Chaconne by Carl Nielsen:

 

"Mary had a little girl,

She also had a son,

She played for them a lullaby:

Carl Nielsen's Dansk Chaconne."

My favourite Saint-Saens:

 

Africa

--- first time I heard this amazing piece was on a United Airlines flight in '09

Piano Concerto No 5 - "Egyptian"

 

--- the 1st movement grows on you after a while

 

--- the 2nd movement beautifully Oriental

 

--- the 3rd movement reminds me of the steamboat on Death on a Nile chugging up the nile with Hercules Poirot / Peter Ustinov and Angela Lansbury fluttering away
