With no accidentals, this is s gorgeous piece of music. I wish Sylvia Woods would arrange some more of Gustav Holst's music for the harp. It is such a lovely melody, so beautifully arranged, and it sounds more difficult that it is to play. I will be loving this one way beyond the bleak midwinter.

I ordered this right before Christmas thinking I would play it for Christmas 2012. But when I downloaded it, I was so enthralled by the piece that I decided that I would play it during the Christmas season of 2011 even though it would be after December 25. I chose to play it on my 26 string Evensong. When I played it I got so many compliments on it. It "fit" perfectly on the smaller harp and was such a delight to play. Order it or download it to have for the next Christmas season. You will not be disappointed! Thanks, Sylvia for arranging this and making it easy and delightful to play.
A Must Have For the Holiday Season!

Sylvia has done it again. This is a wonderful piece that I love to play during the holidays! I love that fingerings are included on it! Thank you Sylvia!
This is my very favorite piece to play. It is simply gorgeous. As I prepared to play it at church I practiced it many times for weeks ahead of time and neither I nor my family ever tired of hearing it.

One of my most favorite songs by Sylvia! The melody is beautiful . . . and the arrangement is just so wonderful. A must-have for your Christmas repertoire.
