Christmas at First Light composed by Alexandra Molnar-Suhajda
Written for 1 or 2 Flutes and Lever (or Pedal) Harp
Includes score and parts
A collection of ten holiday selections, written purposefully such that the flute parts are more difficult than the harp part. The arrangements are shorter in length, making them a good fit for places within a service when you need just a little interlude, but easy to repeat or otherwise alter to make them last a little longer. The harp parts can be played on either a lever or pedal harp.
From the arranger :
Written with an easier harp part and more difficult flute parts. Although I have given each piece the title by which I am familiar with it, many of htese hymn tunes are associated with multiple sets of lyrics, used at different times of the liturgical year and by different Faith traditions. I have therefore included the tune's traditional name wiht each arrangement so that you can use the arrangement in the way that best suits your ensemble's needs.
