A lovely selection of music

Several of these songs are not available in other classical collections for lever harp. The majority are not too difficult. This is a great resource for a gigging harpist. My only disappointment is that some of the pieces are too short. Many do not contain the development section, presumably to avoid difficult lever changes.


One of my favorite books

I've enjoyed playing many of the pieces in this book. It features a long of songs that are familiar to most listeners (by sound if not by name). The pieces vary quite a bit in difficulty level, given the amount of lever changes in some, but as an intermediate level player I think I would be able to get through the majority of them with the appropriate amount of practice. There are also a good number of pieces that seemed quite playable right off the bat, which is always nice.
