This collection will benefit all of you who have called wanting ensemble music for a unique group of instrumentation.  Here are a few examples of how this music can work – the possibilities really are almost endless:

If your musical family consists of  a harp player, viola player, clarinet player, flute player, guitar and accordion player – Simple Pleasures will work for you! If your church ensemble consists of 3 flutes, 1 harp, a clarinet, 2 guitars and a cello, this will work for you! If your community ensemble consists of 2 flutes, 2 violins, 4 clarinets, 1 viola, 2 Bb saxophones, a cello, a tuba, and a harp player, this music will work for you.

The “Simple Pleasures with Friends” series gives the beginning harp player or any harpist short of time fine tunes in easily accessible settings.  The harp parts are technically accessible yet full-sounding.  Each one-page, musically satisfying harp arrangement can be played as a solo or mixed and matched with the three treble/cello/viola parts (melody, descant, and harmony). The same arrangement is also given one step higher (useful for Bb clarinet).  Guitar chords are included, as well as harp fingerings and placing brackets.

Each title has 8 handout pages.  Each handout page can stand alone as a trio, or mix and match with the other 7 handouts.  You are welcome to make 3 copies of each page for your ensemble players.  The pages are not bound in any way, so that you can arrange them the best way for your group: 3-ring, comb binding, folders; whatever works best for you.  We have provided a sample of each of the 8 handout pages from the title “Banks of Spey” The Eight Components of Each Title:
