For lever or pedal harp.

William Mahan truly captures the moods and Colors of Italy in this book of original compositions. The music, along with William's illustrations, will take you on a trip through the Italian countryside. Each piece has a different flavor or "color" matched with an Italian city. Truly inspired, these compositions can be used for any type of situation: for yourself, for healing music, for background music, and for recitals. True to the Italian flavor, some of the melodies incorporate triplet and mordent ornamentation. Gentle and flowing, you'll find a lyrical right hand melody supported by lush chords. The music is for intermediate harp players. Some pieces could be played by advanced beginners, particularly if they can play cross-overs and cross-unders with the left hand. The pieces are in the key of C or G, and about half of them have several sharping lever changes within the music. A few fingerings are included. Most of the pieces can be played on a harp with an octave-and-a-half below middle C, going down to the F or G, although Vatican Violet has a few lower notes. Most of the pieces are 2 to 4 pages long. All the Colors of Rome is a gorgeous 7-page performance piece, about 5 minutes long. The PDF is 32 pages long.
