ALL HARPS INTERMEDIATE Star of Wonder – Sunita Staneslow has artfully arranged 6 unique Christmas songs, some of which have not been arranged for harp previously. Her arrangements are evocative, creative and are a welcome addition to the Christmas harp repertoire. Sunita describes her process of writing this book: “I arranged these melodies during two quarantine periods.

Surrounded by stars and then joyful music, I was in the perfect setting to arrange carols. May you also feel the power and inspiration of wondrous starlight.” Designed for intermediate lever
