fresh & creative arrangements of 3 traditional favorites:

Morning Has Broken - in the style of Cat Stevens' hit from the 70s

The Water is Wide - inspired by Ed Gerhard's guitar recording, with his signature, delicate harmony

Wild Mountain Thyme - also inspired by Ed Gerhard's guitar recording, with beautiful, harmonic nuances

A Thousand Years - the oft-requested theme song from "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn"

NEW MUSIC from 2014 & 2015:

The Music of Friends Book #2 - a much-requested second collection of contemplative music from my favorite harpist-composers.

Gabriel's Oboe - by Ennio Morricone, from the movie "The Mission," one of the loveliest pieces ever written.

Essence of "The Swan" - Balfour Knight's adaptation of the theme from Saint-Saens' "Le Cygne/The Swan." It's beautiful, and it's miraculously lever-free!

You Raise Me Up - made popular by Josh Groban (We all need this in our repertoire!)

The Moment - Kenny G - absolutely beautiful on the harp!

Stephen Foster Collection - includes "Slumber My Darling," "Beautiful Dreamer," "I Dream of Jeanie with the Light Brown Hair," "My Old Kentucky Home," and several others - 8 familiar songs.

Carol Ann - composed by Michael W Smith for piano, someone called this "elegant" when I played it recently at a music tasting.

Cry Out to Jesus - by Third Day, winner of the Dove Award for song of the year.

Hector the Hero - a lovely Scottish lament by J. Scott Skinner.

Quiet Centre Medley - includes both "Come and Find the Quiet Centre" and "Alone Yet Not Alone."
