The 17 arrangements in this book are from Megan Metheney's album "Bernard's Christmas: Variations on Works by Bernard Andres." Each piece infuses a work by Mr. Andres with a Christmas carol. Some of these arrangements contain a small phrase of an Andres' composition juxtaposed with a carol; some are set as medleys, while others combine the two parts so that they are played simultaneously. This music highlights the complex yet simple style of Andrès' music and his contribution to the contemporary harp repertoire, both for the beginning and advanced harpist.
The pieces are playable on lever and pedal harps, and lever changes and pedal markings are included. The keys range from 4 flats to 2 sharps, with only a few fingerings. Chord symbols are included. Most pieces are at an intermediate level, but some can be played by advanced beginners.
The YouTube video below shows Megan performing the first piece: Ribambelle #5 / Carol of the Bells. You can see samples of the first few lines of each piece below the video.
This 50-page PDF includes 47 pages of music.
You can purchase the entire PDF for $25, or PDFs of the individual pieces for $4 each.
