For lever or pedal harp.

Nancy Hurrell performs on Renaissance harp as a solo performer and also as a member of an early music group, giving concerts throughout the US and Canada. Nancy is a harp consultant for the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, assisting with the historical harp collection. She is also the director of the Historical Harp Society's Harp Survey Project, cataloguing early harps. She brings all of this knowledge together in this book of popular cantigas and Renaissance dances arranged for harp. The music is playable on historical, lever, or pedal harp. Nancy also includes useful notes on sources and performance practices. The ornamentation is written in the music, but lever or pedal changes are omitted. There are 14 solos and two 3-part ensembles. A majority of the pieces are in the key of C, with a few in 1 sharp or 1 flat. There are no fingerings. 77 pages.
