    Hi everyone!

    I can’t believe that it’s already fall!

    I’m working on arranging lesser-known/played Xmas songs for lever harp for an upcoming gig.

    This is an interesting post, thanks for starting a conversation! 🙂

    I’m a student, so I work on simpler stuff. But this week I’m learning Sylvia Wood’s arrangements for Both Sides Now, and Bookends. I also learned Eleanor Rigby, and a song called Tropical Dreams from Sylvia’s book Gecko Tails. As you can probably tell I’m a Sylvia Woods junkie, but I’m also learning David Ice’s arrangement of Stairway to Heaven!

    Thanks for the post!

    Jerusha, I was going to reply to your post before I ever even saw my name.

    Hi Natalie,

    “Eleanor Rigby” is a great song.

    Brook,

    When you get With One Voice in the mail, check out “Before the Marvel of This Night” on pg. 636.

    Nothing on the stand, actually, but I’m thinking of “Moon River,” a propos of just having reread BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY’S and reading a book about the filming of it. (Truman Capote had Marilyn Monroe in mind and was not best pleased at the choice of Audrey Hepburn. Nor was he pleased by the pussyfooting around with the plot.)

    Anyway, that reminded me of how wistful and touching Audrey Hepburn was, sitting on the fire escape and singing “Moon River” to the guitar, never mind that she could neither really sing nor play the guitar. Also, there’s a lovely YouTube video of “Moon River” on flute and harp (Floraleda ???? Forget last name).

    Thanks Jerusha!

    Yes I am learning Sylvia’s Lennon and McCartney arrangement from her Lennon and McCartney book. That book is absolutely amazing, I’m a huge Beatles fan!

    David Ice’s arrangement was much easier to learn than I expected, it has beautiful arpeggios. It slid right under my fingers I loved it!

    Kreig,

    That’s neat that you have your own system of shorthand.
