A Thousand Years Sheet Music


This love song has a breath-taking, magical feeling to it. The original recording by Christina Perri has a prominent finger-picking guitar part which seems to be begging for a harp version! Christy-Lyn’s arrangement maintains the beautiful simplicity of the song while making it really comfortable to play on the harp.
