White Rose music-book by Christina Tourin – Innovative and magical harp music centered around the theme of the rose, in many colors and forms. Intermediate level.
The White Rose Harp Music Book is full of innovative and magical harp music centered around the theme of the rose, in many colors and forms. For example, the Red Rose represents our soul, and the White Rose a symbol of pure love.
This delightful collection of songs presents a summer walk through a garden full of bloom! As if specially created for an outdoor concert (with afternoon tea!) in a friend’s beautiful arboretum and flower garden?
This book contains 10 lovely harp songs for you to play and enjoy. Some are definitely at their best when played up to speed as catchy little jigs and reels, while others are more reflective, like the Last Rose of Summer.
All of the songs in this book are also on the White Rose CD, which you may wish to also purchase as it can help with getting the right tempos and rhythmic ‘feel’.
Please note: Four of the 14 songs on the CD (Wind Rose by Patricia John, The Rose by Amanda MacBroom, In the Garden by Charles Schuetz and Prelude in C by J.S. Bach) do not appear in the book due to copyright restrictions.
