Pedal or Lever Harp

Music for the Irish Harp, Vol. 3 Book by Nancy Calthorpe

Item #7953b

For lever or pedal harp.

This is the third of four volumes of Ireland's most beautiful songs and airs, selected and arranged by Nancy Calthorpe (1914 - 1988). Nancy was a well-respected harp teacher and arranger for the Irish harp in Ireland during the second half of the 20th century.

Volume 3 includes 7 harp solos, 4 of which are pieces by O'Carolan. The remaining 12 songs are for voice (or a melody instrument) with harp accompaniment. These accompaniments are not meant to be played as harp solos, as they do not include the melody.

The pieces are in keys ranging from C to 4 flats, and only a few have sharping lever changes with the music. The pieces in 4 flats could also be played by tuning the harp in 3 sharps. A few fingerings are included. 19 pieces, 48 pages, paper-bound.
