Dear Friends,

We are very pleased to announce a new book:  Harp Crossings by Diana Stork!  It's a delightful collection of Latin-inspired pieces, perfectly suited for intermediate harp players. The music lies well under the fingers, and the tempos range from fast to slow.  With a good variety of Latin rhythms, the book also includes some great "south-of-the-border" harp techniques! For Latin, Lever, and Pedal harps. Includes links to excellent audio recordings of all the print music in the book.

Best stated:  These pieces stand as both an excellent window into the rich culture and contagious rhythms of Latin-America and a testament to the important role women play in expanding, developing and preserving Latin-American music traditions.
~ Amelia Romano, Lever Harpist, Composer

Harp Crossings is $25.
