    Does anyone know a source for harp sheet music for Yiruma's beautiful lullaby called 'River Flows in You'?  I'd love to learn this piece.  Thanks for any info you can share.

      Musicnotes.com has several versions. They're for piano, but work just fine on harp.

      Oh, I should have mentioned that if you play lever harp, there's one version that works better than the longest versions. They have a three page version that's still pretty close to the original but has no key change. (You can just play a single 16th note G for the repeated 32nd notes in the passage on the second page, if that's hard for you.)

      Hi,

      Im sorry but I cant find this sheet.
      I have a lever harp (Dusty String Ravenna 26 string) and I`m searching a sheet for this song, but I can only find hard piano versions.

      Thank you

      I got mine from PianoFiles.com, they have many different versions. You should easily find what you're looking for.

      I received 4 different versions, but no one playable on a 26string harp :(

      Just updating this for future reference: I see Sylvia Woods now has a harp arrangement available:

      Hi Anne

      I had a go at it a year ago and just used the piano music score, it seems to work well, although my skill isn't (or wasn't) good enough to get the trills right.

      Echoing Barbara's comment, my Sylvia Woods arrangement is on its way here. She just announced its availability and I ordered it right away.

      Very kind Priscilla, thank you.

      My skill wasn't quite up to it when I played it last year, but I am getting faster now.

      I just checked out pianofiles.com. It sound like something that really is illegal, and is doing business in "the grey zone". I would NOT recommend anyone using this service.

      What is the level of difficulty - - would you recommend it for an intermediate player?

      If you look at the bottom of the page she has a preview of the first couple of lines. Those are pretty representative of the difficulty. It's basically pretty much the same as the three-page version sold by musicnotes, and you can see a whole page as a preview there. Both omit the key change and what I guess you might call the bridge section that's in the complete piece.
