HARP ENSEMBLE

THE WOODS for 4 pedal harps is a dreamy composition with a beautiful melody and glassy textures that will take your imagination to a land where fictional forest creatures live.
Published by Lyon&Healy Music and available here.
Level: Advanced
BIXI for 5-8 pedal harps is a high energy, fun piece with hand claps, a groovy bass riff, and melodies using lots and lots of pentatonic scale. It was written for the World Harp Congress in Hong Kong where it had its premiere. The name Bixi comes from the Chinese legend of the Sons of the Dragon. Level: Advanced
ROOTLESS/MIXOLYDIG MELODI for 3 pedal harps is a folksy, dancing medley of Anna's composition Rootless and her mother Margareta Bengtson's composition Mixolydig Melodi ("mixolydian melody, with a twist"). Easy to put together and soothing for the ears!
Level: Intermediate

Both of these songs can be heard in their original versions on the Anna Jalkéus Group album Estrogenia.

CHOIR

ALLT VI ÄR (2012) for SATB choir is a contemplative, heart-wrenching piece with intricate harmonies and a lyric that speaks of regret and longing. The piece can be performed either by an SATB choir (with a few SSATTB splits) or in its original, four part version.
 
 Performed by Anna Jalkéus, Astrid Wilson Roldão, Viktor Rydén and Erik Rosenius.
