A really beautiful collection of melodies and lyrics by William Mahan, who is an architect, painter, musician and jewelry maker. For harp or piano, and voice. The title tune’s lyrics are about first love with a lilting waltz melody in C major. We Were Just Children is a song in 4/4 and the key of C major. It was written in honor of Mr. Mahan’s sister, and can be sung as a tribute to any sibling. You Have Changed My Life is another 4/4 key of C song, with lyrics suitable for a wedding. Thomas Sweet Tommyboy is a melancholy song referring to Mr. Mahan’s father, a farm boy who experienced the loss of his mother at a young age. The Long Black Wall is an anthem to the Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial. This song is presented in the keys of G and F. The F version can be sung by a high soprano, the G version can be sung by an alto (sing an octave lower than written.) A lovely version of Blind Mary is included in the keys of C and G with new lyrics by Mr. Mahan. Seasons is another 4/4 piece in the key of C. A Christmas Hymn to St. Joseph is a lovely minor and haunting tune for low voice. Jennifer’s Lullaby was written for Mr. Mahan’s daughter when she was a baby. LOWER INTERMEDIATE, ALL HARPS.
