Concert arrangements of music performed by Saint Brigid’s Flame as on the CD of the same title. Saint Brigid’s Flame is Mary Radspinner on harp, Constance Braden on winds and Elizabeth Jeter on hammered dulcimer. The arrangements are well thought out, tried and true performance material, with interesting harmonies, countermelodies and rhythms. They can be played on harp or piano, with 2 C instruments. Many of the flute parts were written by Constance Braden. The hammered dulcimer generally plays the melody, the harp plays accompaniment and melody, the flute plays melody and countermelody. Because the music is so diverse in both style and type, the harp parts ranges from easy to intermediate. 118 pages.
