Infused with renaissance flavor and charm, Gary Schocker’s My Kingdom for a Harp is a five-movement suite of character pieces that may stand on their own as short musical scenes (including a wedding march), or performed as a 14-minute recital work. Within the reach of intermediate players, and fully delightful for advanced and professional harpists. 12 pages.
