Yn y Mwd (In the Mood) by Bethan Bryn. Eleven harp pieces composed in the style of traditional Welsh harp tunes for penillion. These make good pieces for weddings or other occasions, as they are somewhat stately in character.

Was $12, now $9. We have one of these left.
Special! Sain Y Werin (trans. Folk Music): 20 traditional Welsh folk tunes arranged for pedal harp and flute (or other C instrument). Most are duo arrangements, except for two harp solos and one flute solo. The pieces are arranged so that they can be played one at a time, or consecutively without stopping (e.g., if being played before a wedding). The book of harp music has three staffs, two for the harp plus a staff showing the C instrument line. There is a separate booklet included for the C instrument. For the price of this book and booklet, $15, we will throw in the companion cassette tape, worth $12 (perhaps you have equipment that can turn this cassette into a CD?). This tape has a complete harp and flute performance, plus separate harp and flute performances for purposes of rehearsal, or for student practice. Click beats are added to aid in coordinating some parts. Harp book, flute booklet, plus cassette Sale $15.
