A collection of old Christmas carols arranged for lap harp. The 25 carols date from the 14th through the 19th century, originating from Great Britain, France, Italy, Germany, and Spain, plus two early American folk carols. The range of the music is 2½ octaves, from C up to G which can be played on most lap harps. Although arranged for lap harp, this music is fun to play on any size harp. Chord symbols are included so that players with larger harps can “fill out” the arrangements with more notes if they wish. Fingerings are included. Suzanne has done extensive research to provide lyrics in both English and the original language, as well as historical notes for each carol. 56 pages. INTERMEDIATE, ALL HARPS.
