Sea and Sky, Celtic music for healing and relaxation arranged by Sunita Staneslow.

From the arranger: When I recorded my CD, Sea and Sky, I never imagined that I would be writing a companion book of my arrangements.  I improvised an arrangement around each melody to create more of a relaxing flow. In writing down the music I played, I tried to be as true as possible to the recording, making only minor adjustments. If your fingers do not fit the arrangements, feel free to adapt them to fit your hands so the music will sound like your creation.  I hope you enjoy playing these beautiful, timeless melodies.

Wild Mountain Thyme
This song is also known as “Will You Go, Lassie, Go” and is based on an old Scottish tune called “The Three Carles o’Buchanan.”

This traditional Irish song was first collected in Donegal by poet Padraic Colum and musicologist Herbert Hughes and published in 1909.

Cape Clear Island lies off the coast of West Cork on the southern tip of Ireland. The haunting melody of this traditional Irish slow air captures the spirit of this beautiful corner of the world.

The lyrics to this cherished song are from a poem written in 1794 by Robert Burns. The melody is based on a traditional air.

On our website,, we offer a wide selection of paper and download music. We were always in a quandary about publications having several parts, or that include sound files. After realizing that we can place multiple files into one folder and “zip” it up, we are now able to offer book + cd options.

What we do: sound files and the PDF book are placed into a folder and zipped. The zipped folder is inserted into the product on the back end of the web site.

What you receive: after you purchase, you receive a zipped folder. This is a folder that literally has a picture of a zipper on it, indicating there is more than one document in the folder.

What you do with it: Generally by double clicking on the folder, it automatically opens up. The challenge lies in whether or not you have a program that unzips these folders. If you do, it is as simple as double clicking and the contents are revealed. Alternately, you can right click on the folder, which brings up choices, one of which is “open with” – you then click on your unzip program.

If you don’t have a program to unzip your files you’ll have a challenge! Recently I bought a small laptop for my zoom lessons. This laptop did not come with winzip, or any other kind of program that unzips these folders. The computer kept wanting me to purchase winzip for $29.  I found another program that does a great job, and it is free. 7-zip unzips all my compressed (zipped) folders! It is open source and you can find out more here:

We hope all this information is helpful to you.
