Sylvia   A Personal Note from Sylvia

This Sunday, May 14th, is Mother's Day here in the USA. 

If you are a mother . . . you deserve a present!

If you have (or ever had) a mother . . . you deserve a present!

And, in my humble opinion, the best present for anyone to receive is the gift of music . . . or maybe some harp jewelry!

Happy Mother's Day.  Enjoy your special day!
GemsHarpCenter "hidden gem"
I'm starting a new series which will run occasionally in these newsletters. Each article will feature one aspect of my website that you might not have noticed.  

There's a lot of content on my site, so it isn't surprising that many of my customers don't know what "hidden gems" can be found there.  Well, they aren't really "hidden" . . . but you may not have discovered them yet.

* * * * * * * * * *

I've included lyrics in most of my books of songs, because it is fun to be able to sing-along (at least in your head) while you're playing. However, some of my earliest books did not include the lyrics.


So, this month's "hidden gem" is Sylvia's Book Lyrics in the Fun Stuff section.

You can download and print FREE PDFs of the song lyrics for the following books, by clicking on the links below.

Teach Yourself to Play the Folk Harp lyrics
The lyrics can help you learn the pieces in this book.

Hymns and Wedding Music for All Harps lyrics
The 2011 edition of the "Hymns and Wedding" book includes the lyrics.  Earlier editions of this book do not. So if you have an edition before 2011, you'll find these lyrics helpful.

Irish Dance Tunes for All Harps lyrics
Most of the pieces in this book are dance tunes with no lyrics.  This PDF includes the lyrics to the 4 songs Rocky Road to Dublin, Little Beggarman, Carrickfergus, and The Parting Glass. 
arrangerPDF update - harp and organ
If you ever play at church, you'll be happy to hear about three brand new PDFs for harp and organ by Rhett Barnwell.  They are all playable on either lever or pedal harp.

Andante Cantabile by J.S. Bach arranged by Rhett Barnwell for harp and organ
Be Thou My Vision arranged by Rhett Barnwell for harp and organ
Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing arranged by Rhett Barnwell for harp and organ

Check out all of Rhett's PDFs on his author page.

P.S. Rhett's PDFs are NOT part of this month's 15% off sale.
ExtravaganzaLuz Marina Ortiz jewelry
Luzma Slide Large
Last month, when we featured Alfredo Ortiz and his music, I forgot to include one very important piece of information.  His wife, Luz Marina Ortiz is an amazing jewelry designer.  Not surprisingly, her designs are harps.

Luz Marina was born in Colombia, and all of her beautiful harp jewelry designs are handcrafted by silversmiths in that country. 

One of her amazing sterling silver necklaces is part of our 15%-off sale this month with the code word mom. See below for more information.

The gold-plated version of this necklace is NOT part of this month's sale.
