It's been wonderful to hear from harp groups who have enjoyed playing from The Harpers Play Book. In A Circle of Harps I continue to explore the possibilities of three part arrangements for harp ensembles. I believe all parts can be interesting to play whatever the skill level. In these multi-level arrangements the simplest part is fundamental to the piece, just as important as the more difficult parts. I hope this book enables groups of players of all ages to expand their repertoire and enjoy making music together.
I dedicate this book to harp circles everywhere! -- Nancy Hurrell 2002
