Welcome to my book of middling level tunes for harp. As in my earlier book Fires at Midnight, I suggest you listen to the accompanying CD at your leisure and absorb the music before trying to play. There are differing styles and chord types here plus some chord charts so feel free to make your own shapes and arrangement. I am very grateful to the composers Andy Thorburn, Phil Cunningham and Ivan Drever for letting me arrange their beautiful tunes. Do check out their own recordings and make more music!

Welcome! Please listen to the accompanying CD as often as possible before you try to learn these tunes. This will let the shapes and patterns of the melodies and chords settle in your brain before you attempt the hard bit of transferring them to your own fingers. Take it slow and steady with building up the arrangements – perhaps a right hand first or chord pattern as I have done on the recording. Use the CD again to play along to or to accompany yourself – karaoke clarsach!

With this selection of traditional and new pieces, I`ve used a range of styles and feel. I hope you find something you really like the sound of and will play for a long time to come.
