Thanks , Sopsax, yes. The song in question is specifically Lulajze Jesuniu, a beloved Polish Christmas carol and the choir has some quirky harmonies. However, I got down to it last week and am quite chuffed with my effort! My teacher checked it out and simplified a couple of overambitious jumps.
I've chosen to play Pampuch's arrangement of Pachelbel's Canon, and Betty Paret's Berceuse de Noel for my entry into the solo world!!

Choir conductor: "Dorfmouse, do you think you could accompany one of the carols in the Advent concert?"
"Ermmm...."
"Yes, just make up a simple accompaniment! And it'd be silly to have the harp there for just one song wouldn't it - the audience would love to hear a couple of short pieces! Not many harps round here."

Guess what I'm doing in a couple of weeks. Not one to be called chicken, me. Gulp!!

 

Just seen this! That's wonderful! They'll love it and it'll be soooo much fun preparing, I'm sure!
