What Child is This? Sheet Music


This lovely Christmas tune works so well on the harp, and can be played in front of the Christmas tree or at church events. This arrangement is the simplest possible version with a left hand part, so you can play it even if you’ve recently started playing the harp. NOTE: This is the exact same arrangement as Greensleeves.
