How Does a Moment Last Forever from Beauty and the Beast sheet music arranged by Sylvia Woods
For lever or pedal harp.
Alan Menken and Tim Rice wrote this beautiful, nostalgic song especially for Disney's 2017 live-action film
Beauty and the Beast. (It was not in Disney's 1991 animated version.)
Near the beginning of the film, Belle's father Maurice (Kevin Kline) sings How Does a Moment Last Forever while crafting a music box and reminiscing about his deceased wife. Later, Belle (Emma Watson) sings the melody with different lyrics when she discovers the truth about her mother's death when she was a baby.
Celine Dion's rendition of How Does a Moment Last Forever plays during the film's closing credits.
Sylvia's harp arrangement is for advanced-beginner to intermediate harpists. It is in the key of G (1 sharp), and requires C# and D# lever or pedal changes. Lyrics, fingerings, and chord symbols included. 6 pages of music.
The harp range needed for this piece is 4 octaves, 29 strings from G to G. If you play the first and last lines an octave lower than written, in relation to the rest of the piece, it will fit on a harp with at least 23 strings from G up to A.
