New Compositions – Sheet Music

 Title: Little Dove Sheet Music

Composed by: Christina Tourin

3 very special tunes for the New Year. The first being a song I composed that appears in my Illuminations Healing Music Book called Little Dove. This was composed at a poignant time in my life. We cherish the joyful times as inevitably most all people face some kind of troubled times. Little Dove was written on Christmas Eve while sitting back and admiring the lights on the tree with a Little Dove on the treetop. The song reflects the emotions of the evening. It has been a powerful song for many including myself. And on a side note, it was my Mother’s favourite composition of mine.

Little Dove –

by: Christina Tourin

The words to the song are as follows:

Little Dove, what do you see?
Flying o’re our Christmas tree?
In our home, do you see joy?
For the love for one another?Do you see the joy and pain?
Hugs and kisses, sun and rain?
Tears we shed to understand,
Life’s deep mysteries unending?

Then fly above and spread the word
that we are given what we need
just dip and soar and know, my Dove,
that we keep learning more,

About our selves,
and those we love,
about our friends and family,
so bless this Christmas with your Peace,
and carry where you go,That Hope and Love live in our hearts,
the same words of long ago,
born to us on Christmas Day,
A Light to guide us on our way.

To show us how to be the Light,
in all we do and think and say,
on this quiet Christmas night,
Let my Light shine forth, I pray.

 Title: Diamonds From Heaven Sheet Music

Composed by: Christina Tourin

In November in the USA we celebrate our harvest; our time of reaping of what we have sewn and take time to give thanks. Thankful gratitude for all we have, the miracle of all we are, and all the opportunities that we have before us. A while back I put together an album called Diamonds from Heaven.  It is a collection of inspirational songs and hymns. One of the medleys is called the Thankful Medley.

The songs included in this medley are:  Doxology; Come, ye Thankful People Come; We Gather Together; All Creatures of the Earth and Sky; Alleluia Amen.

I offer you the opportunity to listen to the Thankful Medley this month along with Diamonds from Heaven, a song I composed. Driving by a beautiful lake one day, I saw thousands of sparkling diamonds dancing on the water. It was a beautiful sight to behold and this tune dropped right on down from Heaven!

Note: Diamonds from Heaven and 24 other compositions (besides the ones listed here) can be found in Christina’s collection of Original Compositions – Illuminations – Healing Music Vol.1     25 Compositions arranged in multiple levels await you.

I encourage you this month to take advantage of my special offer. I had an overrun of these CDs and at the moment would love to get the music to people in nursing homes, hospitals, hospices and anyone who loves listening to solo harp and inspirational music.  Therefore, I am offering 5 CDs for $25.00 this month +s/h.
They will make wonderful holiday gifts and you will be giving those in your local care facilities something that I know seniors enjoy. It is sad for me to see these sitting on my storage unit shelf when people love hearing the old familiar hymns so I hope the music can get out there.

Thank you in advance – Christina

 Title: Colors of the Season music

Composed by: Christina Tourin

Jenne's Farm with trees in autumn colours.

colorssheetThis is a lush recording with leaves brimming with color that are slowly falling to the ground, preparing our time for inward reflection in the upcoming months. While the Colors of the Season are red, orange and golden tones, the Colors of the Season for our neighbors in the Southern Hemisphere are pink, violet and yellow tones.

The day after I was in the studio recording this song, my amazing recording engineer and guitarist friend, Peter Sprague sent out his news letter. This is what he says. Yes, these days, I feel like I am free of the click track!
“I’m thinking about this gal (Tina Tourin) that plays the harp and records in my studio. She’s living her life in rubato*. You know that scene of serenity where the harpist plays floaty, gentle music as life goes on around her? She’s free of the click track, arriving at the next bar whenever it feels right.

*rubato — the temporary disregarding of strict tempo to allow an expressive quickening or slackening, usually without altering the overall pace.”
Do have fun learning this piece and feel free to enter into Rubato. A very nice place to be! CRT

Title: Imaginings

Composed by: Christina Tourin

tophattinath1I am especially excited to share this new composition with you!  During my travels this summer (which resulted in a delay of posting the new compositions), fortunately I received so much inspiration for new songs!  This is called Imaginings, sub-titled Dollink which is an affectionate English term for ‘Darling’. It was inspired after listening to a fun song called the “Graceful Ghost” performed by the group Whiplash. (You can listen to GG on Amazon.)   I envisioned prancing on stage with a top hat and cane and playing my Blevins Touring 33. (Had fun visualizing the result – see image to the right! !)   I got to thinking about the history of ‘Top Hats and Canes’ and found it was a ‘screwball musical comedy’ from 1935, music written by Irving Berlin that featured Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers!. What transpired in my head was this new song with a swing feel to it, Imaginings.  I have posted it here as a harp solo. However, when I went to record it, my engineer, the dynamic guitarist Peter Sprague and I couldn’t help but have lots of fun in the studio that day.  Therefore, although there is not a guitar transcription for this, for who could ever pull off playing like Peter!, I share the second clip of our duo. I hope you enjoy this song as much as I do.

Title: Come to the Meadow

Composed by: Christina Tourin

We have a beautiful meadow here in Mount Laguna. Each Spring, the farmer brings up his cows for grazing. My father loved his cows and when I go and sit by the meadow and watch the cows, I feel his closeness. I took my harp down on May 15th, the day of my Dad’s birthday. The cows were very curious. They stopped their munching and all laid down to listen to the music. This little tune was what came through. Come to the Meadow. It is designed for beginning harp players (can be played on harp or piano) and on a small harp with no levers – in the key of C.

Title: Angelic Harp

Composed by: Christina Tourin

This month I offer to you a song called Angelic Harp – Ethereal Ecstasy. This song was first composed in 1994 but never released. The lovely angelic voice is provided by Karen Kaye from the UK with Michael Tingel doing the production. I have created the sheet music this month so that it can be played on harp, keyboard or piano. I invite you to take a listen to this very Ethereal music.

Title: Music is Love

Composed by: Christina Tourin

When I came across this quote, “Music is not what I do. It’s who I am.”, it rang true in my soul. For as long as I remember, I have been surrounded by beautiful music starting with my mother playing Ravel and Debussy on the harp when I was born and during my childhood. Throughout my life I experienced classical masterpieces, Early Music, Celtic Traditionals, music from other countries, improvisational jazz, upbeat bluegrass, and favorite pop tunes. There always has been a tune in my head, it is the way I relate to the world, and there were always melodies that would trickle down from the heavens. I have been most fortunate to meet wonderful musician friends with whom I love to collaborate on these little sparkles that illumine my whole being through the generosity of the Creator. Music IS Love.

I came upon some lovely quotes that I would like to share. The first are by Pablo Casals 1876-1973, an amazing Spanish cellist.

  • “In music, in the sea, in a flower, in a leaf, in an act of kindness…..I see what people call God in all these things.”
  • “Music is the divine way to tell beautiful, poetic things to the heart.”
  • “Music will save the world.”
  • Aldous Huxley wrote: “After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is Music.”
  • “Music expresses that which cannot remain silent and that which cannot be put into words.” – Victor Hugo
  • And lastly, “If Music Be the Food of Love, Play On” – Shakespeare.

The-Starry-Lei-Over-MauistarryleicoverTitle: The Starry Lei of Maui

Composed by: Christina Tourin

Recently, I was visiting my family in Maui. At 3:00 a.m. I awoke to go outside and look up the stars over Kula, specifically looking for the line up of planets.  The heavens were beautiful with all configurations of  constellations and what appeared to be a beautiful lei made of stars. Leis are traditional Hawaiian flower necklaces given as a sign of welcoming and to show affection. A lei is a common symbol of love, friendship, celebration, honor, or greeting. In other words, it is a symbol of Aloha. For me, standing under the stars, I felt not only the welcoming from the crystalline stars to be on Maui but the earth being held in the greatest love.  Aloha Maui!

The song has the elements of all the beautiful twinkling stars, played on the harp by myself and keyboard celeste by Cathy DeWitt of Gainesville, FL. The violin by Jacob Lawson adds the richness and mystery of the deep depths of the Universe that go on for eternity while my friend, David Eastoe of Castle Cary, UK adds his lovely slack key guitar to let us know that indeed, this is truly where I beheld the magic in Kula. Mastermind, Peter Sprague, of Leucadia, CA, adds the finishing touches and brings the whole composition together and special thanks to Rob Rothschild for the Florida recording session.

I look forward to performing this piece in Maui at my April 30th concert sponsored by the MauiTempehCo. and MauiHarper.com, Irene Ryding in her beautiful new home featuring the most gorgeous views from the music concert room overlooking the ocean.

I hope you enjoy this as I love sharing those soulful chords. May this be a praise to the heavens!  Christina

St-Pat-DayTitle: ST. Patrick’s Day

Arranged by: Christina Tourin

Over the past years, our International Harp Therapy Program Conference has taken place during St. Patrick’s Day. This was the perfect opportunity to feature our Irish tunes on the Celtic Harps and to feature two of our Harp Practitioners from Ireland.  The piece this month that I have prepared for you happened to be a fiddle tune called St. Patrick’s Day – a fun and nice melody for the harp. I decided to make an arrangement of it and have recorded it a bit on the slow side so that beginners can listen to the melody and get their fingering solid before taking it up a bit in speed.

Waltz-of-the-snow-Faires-th snowfariesTitle: Waltz of the Snow Fairies
Composed by: Christina Tourin

Living so close to the Pacific Ocean in San Diego area, up on the mountain in Mount Laguna, we had 3 feet of snow in the recent storm that crippled the USA. It was then I was watching the snowflakes fall while snug at home and heard them swirling in a waltz rhythm   It is an easy song, one that is good for beginners.
