Beautiful and mysterious Chinese melodies from Melinda Johnson ranging from easy (meaning single notes in RH and one to three notes played at a time in the LH), to intermediate (meaning four-note RH chords and 16th note arpeggios).  The lowest note that I noticed is the G which is 1 and 1/2 octaves below middle C, so this collection can be played on a Here Lorraine type harp or an older model Dusty 32.  Key signatures range from C to Bb to D.  Can be played on lever or pedal harp.  Love Song of Kang Ding has an optional pedal harp part playing glissandos for 8 bars.  Requires E# and B# (could be played by a lever harp tuned in C and putting the E and B levers up).

No lever or pedal changes indicated.
