Ten original compositions by the composer of the popular “A Rose In Winter”, this work shows a maturity in musical structure and harmony. Intermediate level with right and left hand activity that holds interest from the first note through the last. Left hand generally has a good amount of movement, right hand utilizes good note leading and just the right amount of rhythmic variety. Chord symbols are included. “Gossamer Gate” is in 3/4 in the key of F, a beautiful melody without lever changes, lowest note is low F. “The Spider’s Tomato” is in 3/4 in the key of E minor-ish, lowest note is low D. “Figmint” has a really nice balance of rhythms in the right hand, key of E-minor-ish, lowest note is low E. “The Confluence” is in the key of C minor in 4/4 time with a B lever change, lowest note is low F. Some syncopation in the left hand, very nice harmonies. “Lady of Shamrock” is in the key of C in 3/4 time, a lilting and happy tune with gentle duplet ornamentation, lowest note is low F. “Huckleberry Heaven” is quick and cute in 4/4 time, key of D. Left hand has some interesting off-beat passages, lowest note is low D. “Lazy Dogs” is in the key of G in 6/8, lowest note is low G (can be played on a 30-string harp). Left hand is really great in this tune. “Time to Sleep” is in the key of F in 4/4 time with a nice relaxing interplay between the right and left hand. The lowest note is C below middle C (can be played on a 26-string harp — much is in the upper register). “The Last Goodbye” is in the key of Eb in 4/4 time, a really beautiful and emotional melody written for Sharon’s cousin. It can be played in E major for those who tune in C, lowest note is low E. “Sunstream” is in the key of C in 3/4 time, a gently lilting piece nicely utilizing the full range of the harp, lowest note is low C.
