Companion CD or mp3 downloads

The Companion CD and mp3 downloads include the pieces from this book and from Sylvia's 50 Christmas Carols book. These will assist harp players in learning the pieces in these books. Since many of you will want to "play along" as you are learning, Sylvia has recorded most of the pieces slower than they are usually played, and as "straight" as possible, with little or no expression or rhythmic variations.
In the books each piece has two arrangements: (A) an easy version, and (B) one that is more difficult. On these recordings, Sylvia plays the "B" versions. Since the two versions can be played as a duet, you can play either version along with the recording. The pieces are in the same order as in the books, with the Christmas pieces first, and then the Chanukah ones.

We are selling this music in a variety of formats:
  • Book and/or Companion CD, which we will mail to you
  • PDF and/or mp3 files, to be downloaded to your computer.
Please order the version you prefer.

Chanukah Music

Hi to everyone! I bought 'Chanukah Music for all Harps' because I really wanted to learn to play some Jewish music. I live and work on the island Crete in Greece. When I have a day off I like to play music, sitting in one the small alleys of our old town. A lot of tourists from all over the world visit Crete and I try to have a familiar tune for all of them. The book 'Chanukah Music for all Harps' makes this music very accessible, also for people like me who had no previous experience with Jewish Music. The two different levels for each piece make it all the more interesting: the first arrangement is rather simple and the second one is more advanced. The chord symbols help me out make further arrangements to each tune, so each tune can turn into a set that lasts some minutes. I find the music in this book very exotic and I like the additional sharps in some of them, they make the music even more spicy. Although this music is actually meant for the festive days of Chanukah I love to play it for tourists in summer as well. I already got some very nice feed back from people passing by, Jewish people who were quite moved to hear their own music played on harp in the romantic settings of a historical Greek town!
