For lever harp.
Here's how Douglas describes his arrangement:
I arranged Schubert's famous Ave Maria melody for Lever Harp for my congregation. A member of my congregation requested it at Christmas time. I did not find a suitable arrangement to play, so I took matters into my own hands. This arrangement is the result.
Franz Schubert's well-loved music to the Ave Maria lyrics is known worldwide. Ave Maria is a prayer in the first chapter of the Gospel of Luke when the Angel Gabriel appears to Mary. The words of this prayer are the angel's: "Rejoice, favored one! The Lord is with you! Do not be afraid. Blessed are you. God is with you!" Ave Maria is suited for weddings, funerals, worship services, or at home with friends and family gathered to pray Mary's prayer.
This arrangement may be played on harps with as few as 34 strings. The music is in the key of G (F# is in the key signature) with lever changes in treble G, A, and C. There are several lever changes where the right hand plays the bass clef notes to free the left hand to make the change. Lever changes in the music are indicated with diamond notes, and any hand change is stated clearly with "r.h." or "l.h."
