Pedal or Lever Harp

Celtic Christmas, Volume 2 PDF Download by Thom Dutton

Item #p7462

For lever or pedal harp.

Thom Dutton has arranged this collection of 45 Yuletide carols from Ireland, Scotland, the Isle of Man, Wales, Cornwall, Brittany, and Galicia. Here's how Thom describes this collection:
These early intermediate/intermediate level arrangements include guitar chords, dynamics, and helpful fingerings. Keys are C and Am, G and Em (1#), D and Bm (2#), A (3#), and F (1b) and require a 5-octave range (G1 to C6). Time signatures include 4/4, 3/4, 5/4, 3/2, 6/8 & 9/8. Lever changes are indicated between the staves and with diamond symbols in the music. Techniques include harmonics, triplets, glissandos, gushing chords, soundboard taps, left-hand crosses, downward rolls, and pdlt (pres de la table). Each piece is one to two pages long, so no page turns are needed. Some lyrics are provided with translations.

Denise Grupp-Verbon's review in the Folk Harp Journal said, "What a great resource. . . . This collection would be a great addition to your Celtic Christmas offerings."
