For lever or pedal harp.
Brook Boddie (1968-2020), was a talented harpist, organist, pianist and composer who passed away suddenly at the age of 51. The Brook Boddie Hymnal, Volume I, contains previously unpublished pieces that Brook improvised and posted in the form of YouTube videos, beginning in 2009. Bill Ooms graciously volunteered to transcribe them, and Rhett Barnwell edited and revised them into the current published form.
These 16 original compositions, Christian, and Christmas arrangements are all accessible to the intermediate harpist, with only 2 pedal or lever changes in the entire collection. Fingerings are not included. 34 pages of music.
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to a musical charity specified by Brook's family.
We are selling two PDF versions of this volume.
