Greetings Harpists, Harpers, and Harp Lovers!
We hope you've had a great summer thus far despite the social distancing. We wish for you good health.
Behind as usual in sending out our newsletters, we apologize that our website still reflects that it is June! Right now we can't do anything about that.
We have a few new titles!
From Vicki Smith: Forest Green - two versions: Harp Duo and Harp Duo with Bells
This arrangement of the well-loved hymn tune, “Forest Green” has a great deal of flexibility since it can be played as a three-part (lever or pedal) harp ensemble piece or an ensemble of two harp parts and a bell choir.
From Jaymee Haefner: Ave Maria (Schubert) and Maple Leaf Rag Ensemble
The Ave Maria is well written to avoid the hands on top of each other challenge inherent with this keyboard piece. Pedal harp only, in Bb and 4 other keys. Harp solo and harp with vocalist (can be played by melody instrument.) Maple Leaf Rag is a 4-harp ensemble - advanced and energetic.
From Linda Barton Paul:
A Medley of I Only Have Eyes For You and As Time Goes By. 2 levels - the advanced harpist can play the arpeggios written as ossia. Ignore the ossia and you have a more intermediate version. Pedal Harp. Comes with mp3 played by Linda.
Get Ready for Christmas with Ten Carols for Two, Book Two arr. by Darhon Rees-Rohrbacher
A La Nanita Nana | Angels We Have Heard on High/Deck the Halls 
The Coventry Carol

I have a student working on "Essence of the Swan".
This is a tutorial on the piece.
Our new site is moving along. We hope to reveal it in about 6 weeks. Is there anyone out there who has a bit of time to do copy and paste work? If so, please email us.
Thanks for reading and see you next time!
John, Mary & Reba
