Edelweiss Sheet Music

USD$5.00

Edelweiss is a nostalgic song from the musical “The Sound of Music”. The Edelweiss flower represents love for the homeland of Austria, and there is a special moment in the movie where the captain rediscovers his love for music by singing this song with his children. Christy-Lyn’s harp arrangement captures the beautiful simplicity of the song, with enough variation and interest to make it a piece that you will want to keep playing again and again.
