A Thousand Years

This blog is named after a song by Christina Perri. Know it? I didn’t either, until I was asked to play it at a wedding. I googled, as one does, and YouTube came up with the goods. I can do that, I thought after a preliminary listen. I love arranging things for the harp, and the tune sounded quite simple. The Internet even provided me with a piano version I could use as a starting point. I said yes to the mother of the bride-to-be, little realising… That song! The reason it sounds so good when Christina Perri sings it is (A) her lovely voice and (B) the amazing orchestral backing on rather a lot of instruments. The harp brings its own magic to any song but, with only two hands, I am limited!
