THE SPARROW is an uplifting mid-intermediate level harp solo, composed in memory of harpist and composer Brook Boddie. On the evening of July 15, 2020 I was saddened to learn that Brook had died of cardiac arrest earlier that day. I went to my harp and "The Sparrow" is the music that came through as I reflected on his kindness over the past years. I hope my composition reflects his warmth, light and uplifting spirit.
One of Brook's fine arrangements is called "His Eye is on the Sparrow". My composition hints at this melody as an acknowledgement to his beautiful music that people are drawn to for its heart and soulfulness.
