"Sea of Strings" is a series created for harp ensembles to play. Pieces are arranged so that harp 1 can be played as a solo, both parts may be played as a duet, or a harp quartet/ensemble can assign one staff line per player. Fingerings have been left out since these will change whether the two grand staves are played as duets or if each staff is divided between two hands. Pieces are in the key of C for ease of reading, and to accommodate small harps without levers. This series may also be used on other instruments such as piano or string ensemble. Each book in this series focuses on music from one ethnic tradition and may be performed as a set with a reception of culturally appropriate foods to accompany. They may be used as a way to explore cultural diversity. Contents include: Went-ti, The Bamboo Flute, Moon Rising over the Castle, Rainy Day, Chinese Bellflower, Jasmine, Moonlight Lullaby, Japanese Snow Song, Slumber Song of Izumo, Old Philosopher's Sentiments.
Julietta Anne Rabens received her masters and doctorate in music composition from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln studying with Randall Snyder, and her masters of music in harp from Northern Illinois University where she studied with Liz Cifani and Ron Price.
