Winter Ayres is our third recording, Flute and Harp with Ann Beesley on the violin. We chose to make this a “wintery sounding” recording, with just a few pieces that could be heard as Christmas music, but not so much that it needs to be put away at the end of the Christmas holidays.
Sheet music is available for many of the traditional arrangements.
