BARGAIN BASEMENT BEAUTY
*NOBODY LOVES ME*
Truly - nobody loves me! Perhaps it is because a number of the tunes in this book are geared to the US market and it doesn't appeal to our Canadian market -eh?? Still, it does have some great arrangements of Stephen Foster tunes and Winter Holiday music to enjoy. Time to save $$$ !!!
Playable and interesting arrangements, distinctly Kleinstuber, many can be played on a harp of 26 strings, though suitable for all harps. A great selection!
Stephen Foster tunes: Beautiful Dreamer, Camptown Races, Jeanie With the Light Brown Hair, My Old Kentucky Home, Oh! Susanna, and Swanee River. Plus a medley of these tunes.
Patriotic songs and Hymns: America The Beautiful, Battle Hymn of the Republic, The Caissons Go Rolling Along, God Bless America, My Country 'Tis of Thee, The Marine's Hymn, and The Star Spangled Banner. Plus medley.
The Sounds of Winter: O Holy Night, Still Still Still, Plus a medley of these tunes.
Cindy says: It is not easy making nice arrangements for lever harp (which also work easily for pedal harp) which include the important harmonic sounds while leaving out the impossible levering. I have done my best, and I think you will enjoy them. Note that whenever a piece incorporates lever changes, it also notates the pedal changes for pedal harpers. If I couldn't lever a piece in a way that made sense, I didn't use the piece.
