What sheet music did you buy last and why?

Andres Segovia, daily routine, Schott. I am a bit tired of my scale programme. Maybe the old one delivers some Inspiration for new technical exercises.

Harmonizing Flamenco From The Guitar Vol.1 by Claude Worms ... interested in those chords ...
Music is a big continent with different landscapes and corners. Some of them I do visit frequently, some from time to time and some I know from hearsay only ...

A nice arrangement (Krantz) of Falla's La Vida Breve for guitar and violin. The standard Pujol version for two guitars has a lot of nonsense in the 2nd guitar part that most players change/ignore, so it was nice to find an arrangement that simplified things to a much more playable and fluid level. It even has ossia measures for a lot of places if you want to play some of the scale runs in a high or low register like the Pujol.

Per-Olov Kindgren: Prelude V111 and 'Oceans of the Moon - suite'. I enjoy his music without being too taxed!
Scarlatti Sonatas = Barrueco. After listening to K27 being played. this might be too much for my life expectancy!

Digital download of Andrew York's Home. I enjoy listening to others play the piece and it is not difficult so I aim to learn it over the next few weeks.

150 Of The Most Beautiful Songs Ever, Hal-Leonard

Took the book to Office Express and had a spiral binding installed for easy page turning...thought my wife would like to listen to some music she is familiar with. One of her favorites is:" Oh, What A Beautiful Morning" from OKLAHOMA. She perked right up and said play it again Sam...I mentioned my names not Sam and she actually put a smile on her face.

Stay loose,

"So This Is It," by Per-Olov Kindgren. He states on his website that this is a sad little piece, in A minor, and fairly easy to play....it's a "1-2" on a scale where "1" is easy and "5" is difficult. It was $2, and it took me about ten seconds to download and print it.

"Lo, How a Rose E'er Blooming," arranged by Joe Harris.
I saw a post in a topic on here, asking if anybody knew of an arrangement. I think it's a pretty song, and I want to add it to my Christmas music.

10 pieces from the Mulliner Book for guitar and treble recorder arranged by Duarte - recommended by someone on this site.
I'm an average guitarist and I have a friend who is enjoying recorder - we are planning duets at the allotment summer fair!

I bought the last one on Am...U.S. big river site.It's out of print so I got it used,obviously. I was lucky and the seller agreed to a price reduction. I wanted it for the recorder actually. I've only had it for a few hours but it seems pretty straight forward, esp. the recorder parts. But now I have to re-learn soprano fingerings! I don't play treble. I've been playing alto exclusively for a year.

José Maria Galladro Del Rey's "Simple Suite", "California Suite" and his arrangement of "Adios Niño", directly from his website. I have his cd "The Trees Speak" and simply couldn't resist buying some of the sheet music. It will keep me busy for a while.
