Note from the composer
The first version of this piece employs 3-finger root position chords in a stepwise scalar progression with a simple repetitive one-note right hand melody. This version is one page with no lever or pedal changes, and is suitable for small harps.
The second version of this piece expounds on the same melody, but explores alternative finger patterns in 4- finger arpeggios, intervals of octaves and 10ths to stretch the hands, scalar patterns, syncopation, and rolled chords. This version is three pages with no lever or pedal changes, with a larger range.
