Greg Latta's recording "My Favourite Things" is a collection of Hammered Dulcimer solos featuring a wide variety of musical styles played on standard and soprano hammered dulcimers. The album includes Greg's arrangement of "My Favourite Things" from the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical "The Sound of Music". Greg's eclectic tastes are reflected in the variety of styles he has chosen for this collection. Traditional and Contemporary Irish tunes, a traditional American tune, an ancient Galician, or Celtic-Spanish piece, plus his arrangements of a Rossini theme, a Finnish polka, and a Beatles' tune, "Here Comes the Sun" are on the album. He has also included his own composition "Mid-Spring".
