    Hello everyone,

    I am looking for a Christmas piece for solo harp to play at my local Christmas Eve service. Preferably an intermediate/advanced level arrangement? It will be some sort of meditative background music for a small play and sermon during the service. Thanks a lot!

    Happy holidays~

    The first arrangement that comes to mind is “In the Bleak Midwinter” arranged by Sunita Staneslow and published by Mel Bay. You will find it in her book of 16 Christmas songs, “Christmas Eve.” There are many arrangements that you’ll love. They are written for Celtic harp but I play them on my pedal harp. These arrangements are lovely, interesting and tend to be open or sparce – not cluttered!
