seven pieces for pedal or lever harp

Short and Sweet Volume X: Little Sketches ~ $10.00

Now available from Melody's Music for immediate download at purchase for those in a hurry.

Little Sketches are all related by their form and harmonic structure. The first was born of a predefined harmonic structure within which the piece took form. Each subsequent Sketch was based on the original theme with the goal of creating a different view of the source in each Sketch. As nine artists would all interpret a subject differently, each Sketch is a different interpretation of the original form. The harmonic structure of each is not identical, but is nearly so. more info here
