Countries and areas represented include France, Austria, Czechoslovakia, Ukraine, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Spain, Catalonia, Venezuela, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Canada (Native Huron), Japan, China, the Philippines, and more. These beautiful carols are for mid-beginner to intermediate players, and require a harp with two octaves below middle C. The keys range from 3 flats through 2 sharps. Eight of the pieces require lever changes within the music. Lever changes are noted, but not pedal changes. Chord symbols are included, but no fingerings.

Murm'ring a Lullaby has two arrangements: one for lever harp, and one for pedal harp.

Deborah has added short informative descriptions of each carol.
