Default Naptime Music?

I'm thinking something quiet, musical; right now I don't play music during quiet time but thought it might help calm down a couple of twitchy non-nappers. Any suggestions for CD's?
Thanks!

You should check out some Emily wells songs. I've used some of her songs in the past before for an infant room

White noise is my favorite. Rain, fan sounds, etc. But I've also turned the TV on to CNN and they passed out immediately.

I use Spotify. It's online for free. There is a ton of 'sleep' play lists available. Acoustic, nature sounds, white noise etc. I just pit on whichever one looks good and it definitely helps the kids sleep longer and harder

I like the Rockabye Baby! CDs because, while no one sings on the CD, I can sing along to the songs in my head. The Green Day one is my current favorite.

A lot of the other classrooms at my center play classical music during naptime.
