For lever or pedal harp.
Adolph Adam's Cantique de Noel or O Holy Night is one of the most dramatic and beloved Christmas songs. Darhon Rees-Rohrbacher has included 7 arrangements in this PDF. The two harp solos, for either lever or pedal harp, are in the keys of G (1 sharp) and E-flat (3 flats). The 5 arrangements for solo voice with harp accompaniment are in a variety of keys that should reasonably accommodate the vocal ranges of most solo singers. Please see the keys listed in the contents below. Lever changes are indicated, as well as pedal changes, making this publication practical for all harpists. There are no fingerings. This music has been given a rating of "early advanced" because of the nature of the piece itself - not the difficulty of the arrangements. The left hand has a fair number of 10ths; therefore, the ability to reach that interval with ease is imperative. The steady eighth note motif of the right hand requires a very fluid sense of rhythm. This, plus the skill required to follow a soloist, makes Cantique de Noel a challenging piece of repertoire but worth the effort. A delightful and interesting aspect of this publication is the arranger's English translation from the original French, which is far more beautiful and touching than the words we are so accustomed to hearing. This PDF includes 24 pages of music.
