*My Feast of Favorites series was written with lap harps in mind, although of course playable on larger harps. You need C below Middle C and 24-26 strings to play these books.
This last Feast of Favorites contains a very eclectic mix. There are 30 songs, for 60 pages of playable and enjoyable arrangements. There are no “end-of-section” medleys in this book.
In the drop-down menu, you can choose from book, eBook, CD, mp3 download, book/CD combo and the four-book set (Vols. 1, 2, 3 and 4).
The sheet music for these pieces can be found on Sheet Music Plus. You can visit my catalogue there, put a title and my name in the search box and you will find it there. The eBook is also available on Sheet Music Plus.

Childhood Memories: Bicycle Built For Two, Down in the Valley, Grandfather’s Clock, Home on the Range, Home, Sweet Home, Oh, Dear, What Can the Matter Be?, Red River Valley, Summertime Medley and Sweet Betsy From Pike.

“Dear Cindy, I LOVE your arrangements!!! I have books 1 and 2 (Feast of Favorites) and now 3 and 4. They are by far my FAVORITE arrangements. So beautifully done and fun to play! I have been playing the harp for 1 1/2 years now and love it. Thanks for arranging such gorgeous music. PLEASE keep the Feast of Favorites coming!!!!!” Thanks, Gretchen T, CO
“Firstly, I want you to know how much I am enjoying playing your compositions from the Feast of Favorites books. You obviously put a tremendous amount of work into the arrangements. I would be hard pressed to tell you which arrangement is my favorite as they are all so nice to play.” Lauren
“I sight-read Amazing Grace last night…and was totally impressed with the arrangement – true to the original, but with interesting and unexpected touches that made it so much fun to play.” Leigh, OR
“Hi Cindy, I wanted to let you know that I really like your new book Feast of Favorites. It is a book that I will always have with me when I play at the bedside….I hope you have Vol. 2 in the works! What I like about it is that it has a little bit of everything. I sometimes get requests for Christmas music outside of the Christmas season. Even though I have some of these songs in other books, I love your arrangements. You add little touches here and there that are very pleasing to the ears. Thanks again for your great book!” Dawn
“All I can say is bless you Cindy for the beautiful arrangements. I know a lot of thought and hard work goes into the arrangements but they just appear to flow from you to us. Thanks again for not the arrangements but also for the quick delivery. When will Vol. 3 be available?” Loretta M, GA
