Details: Product Description For her ninth book of Celtic harp music, Suzanne Guldimann has researched and arranged 18 historic pieces of music drawn from and inspired by Jane Austen's personal collection of music. The collection features classical pieces by Mozart, Handel and Gluck; and a haunting and romantic selection of the French, Italian, Scottish and Irish traditional airs that were tremendously popular during the late 18th/early 19th century, including several with lyrics by Robert Burns, and two pieces reported to have been among Jane Austen's personal favorites.As a bonus, the not-quite-period English country dance "Mr Beveridge's Maggot", popularized by the 1995 A&E version of Pride and Prejudice, is included. All of the pieces in the collection are arranged to fit on a small harp with just three octaves, but can also be played on larger harps or on any melody instrument. Each arrangement includes fingering, chord symbols, lyrics when available and historic notes. About the Author Suzanne Guldimann has played the Celtic harp for many years, and has always been fascinated by early and traditional music. She is the author of eight books of music for the small harp, ranging from medieval and Renaissance songs to English country dances, sea chanteys, folk songs, ballads and traditional Christmas carols. She is currently working on her first novel.
