Growing Toward the Light  is a collection of pieces that Carol Wood began working on in a period of great sadness, when she and her husband discovered he was suffering from a kind of dementia similar to Alzheimer's.  Only a few of the thirteen pieces in the collection reflect the heartbreak and grief that followed, but, as Carol writes in her introduction, many musical friends encouraged her to try to keep playing and composing

New From Angi Bemiss!  
 
 
Written in 1968 by Joni Mitchell and first recorded by Judy Collins (and then by Joni Mitchell and at least a hundred others),
this tune is instantly recognized and brings a smile.
 
   
From Angi: While sitting at the harp playing "Nearer," "Abide" came to mind. 
With an introduction and interlude, they can be played individually or as a medley.

If you want to keep in the loop, but not receive our e-mails, please consider liking us on FB.  We'll post our announcements there.  If you need to change your e-mail, you can use the unsubscribe option to do that, too. When we send out these announcements, many times we receive a great deal of orders, and sometimes we even run out of certain titles.  We attempt to keep a 4-month supply of each title on hand at all times, based on the current and previous year sales history. If we have run out of a title, you won't be able to order it, but please know that we make every attempt to restock within 10 days.

We generally ship using media mail.  Media is printed or recorded matter, and it used to be known as "book rate" or "library rate".  It is the least expensive way to ship.  We use new box material, or a cardboard support in a new padded envelope to protect your music. We have found that new packaging material survives the journey best, so we don't use recycled material when sending out your orders (except for bubble wrap and paper padding), but we encourage you to recycle the packaging material you receive from us. We flatten and recycle all cardboard boxes from our vendors, and we reuse the bubble wrap.

Your friends at Melody's!
