This book was put together to express Mr. Sullivan's affection for the many wonderful tunes that came out of nineteenth century America. Many of the pieces are well known, but deserved a fresh setting that would be playable on the harp. A few tunes are less well known, or even obscure, but were chosen for their artful melodies. The arrangements translate well on the piano as well as the harp, and Mr. Sullivan also includes guitar chords and lyrics. You'll revive the "Parlor Tradition" of days gone by and make these old tunes live again is part of your own musical tradition. There is a brief historical paragraph on each tune, and a lovely picture. One interesting piece is the "Persian Princess Waltz." It is from a 1901 method book for the reed organ. This method book was discovered in Mr. Sullivan's garage and was autographed by the author, Mattie Pirtle, whose picture is on the back cover of the book. Celtic Harp on the Prairie has been re-issued as an Afghan Press publication. INTERMEDIATE LEVER and beautifully illustrated!
