    The Pacific Harp Institute 2009 Summer Harp Camp played this piece, scored for violin, cello and harp. Does anyone know where I may purchase this music?

    It’s not the same as the one you hear on the video (the harp part in the published version above is almost identical to the opera part), but it’s still a nice arrangement.

    Thank you Brian!
    Would still like the version in the video if anyone knows of it.

    There is a solo harp version of it in Sharon Watson’s opera book,

    http://us.harp.com/info/products/pact_show/id_19396250/

    which incorporates the violin and cello parts in to it, and it sounds to me this is what’s going on in the trio version you heard…the violin and cello playing their regular parts, and the harp playing everything: melody, harmony, and the moving 16ths of the opera part. There are other solo harp version of “Babbino” available at Lyon and Healy also if you do a search under “O Mio Babbino Caro”. Pair the solo harp version with the trio parts from the other arrangement, and I’ll bet you get what you’re looking for.

    Becky and Ernie Brock have an arrangement of this for flute and harp in their Opera Favorites book, but it’s also not quite what you’re looking for.

    If you go to Sharon Watson’s website http://www.sharonwatsonmusic.com, you will find cello and flute/violin accompaniments to her Opera Book for Solo Harp. She also sells the songs individually if you don’t want to buy the book.

    Seattle harpist Alison Austin runs Pacific Harp Institute, and that is her son, Patrick, playing the violin. I am sure she could tell you where to get the music. I will email you with her contact information.

    I believe it is from the At the Opera with Flute, Cello and Intermediate Pedal Harp book arr. by Joyce Weaver. It is very playable. I often use this book to perform with a cellist and violinist. Very playable.
