with CDs tucked neatly into the back page. She recognizes that her listeners enjoy reading about the background of the music on her CDs.
Anne’s latest collections include music that she has arranged and performed over the past decades by request. “Velvet: Timeless Standards on the Solo Harp” contain melodies that will bring you back to the days of old movies, Broadway musicals, and televisions shows, dating back from the early 20th Century all the way to the early 1970s. And when you hear Anne’s “Blue Jeans: Modern Pop on the Solo Harp” album, you’ll think, “ I didn’t know anyone could play those songs on a Celtic harp!” It includes classic rock, heavy metal, R&B, country, and even a bit of new age music—Ballads that may bring back memories of school days, long-lost friends and teenage crushes. Both of these recordings contain a combined 50 tracks of your favorite songs.
“A Light in the Forest”, is her most technically beautiful recording to date. It was recorded in 5.1 Surround Sound, and is perhaps the first folk/world/Celtic CD to be available in this format. The disc contains music of the Celtic Harp with a small ensemble performing music about the woods and the creatures that dwell within them—fairies, trolls, nymphs, leprechauns, witches, bears, and more. It’s packaged in a 31-page hardcover book describing the folk history and legends of these creatures and the tunes.
Anne arranged and recorded a special Celtic wedding music CD called “Haste to the Wedding,” in direct response to the many requests she received from brides and grooms. “Haste to the Wedding” is popular with couples looking for romantic music to accompany their wedding festivities. It includes traditional Celtic music played on solo harp accompanied by an ensemble of traditional instruments. This CD is enclosed in a 48-page hardcover book containing vintage color images, Celtic toasts, blessings, legends, wedding traditions, and recipes.
“Mermaids and Mariners” features traditional and original music of the sea, arranged by Anne for both solo Celtic Harp and harp within a small ensemble. The beautiful sea ballads and shanties are packaged inside a 24-page hardcover book containing a bounty of illustrations and tales about life at sea and the lost loves of those who sail on its waves and swim at its depths. Selections from this recording have been featured on United Airlines Inflight Music Service.
One of her earliest projects, “Through the Mist,” features original New Age flute and harp duets, with flutist David Blonski. This recording is enhanced with soothing environmental sounds woven into the selections. This recording remains a favorite among massage therapists and yoga enthusiasts.
Anne’s Celtic Harp can also be heard on a number of recordings available through the Siddha Yoga Foundation in South Fallsburg, New York, featuring music based on Indian ragas. She has recorded as a guest artist on many other projects.
Her recorded music is also available for licensing. Anne Roos is an active member of The National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (NARAS), and her published music can be licensed through the Harry Fox Agency (Anne Roos is an ASCAP publisher).
