Homeward Bound sheet music arranged by Angi Bemiss
For lever or pedal harp.
Composer and arranger Marta Keen (Thompson) is best-known for her choral works. Her song, Homeward Bound, is one of the most popular and widely-performed contemporary choral pieces. Its heartfelt elegance has touched thousands of musicians and their audiences, and it has become the anthem for many soldiers returning home. Angi Bemiss' arrangement for intermediate harp players captures the warmth and sincerity of this gorgeous piece. Lyrics and chord symbols are included.
Angi's unique sheet music layout gives you 2 versions of the same piece. The 2-page "Key of C" version is on one side of the 11" x 17" sheet, and the 2-page "Key of E-flat" version (in 3 flats) is on the back. Since you get BOTH versions, you'll have a perfect arrangement, no matter which way you tune your lever harp!
The Key of C version goes down to the C that is 2 octaves below middle C, and the lowest note in the E-flat version is the low E-flat.
