For lever or pedal harp.
The Disney animated movie FROZEN won the 2014 Academy Award Oscar for best animated film. Sylvia Woods has arranged 3 of the pieces to be played on lever or pedal harp. Fingerings, lyrics, chord symbols, and lever and pedal change markings are included.
Let It Go and Do You Want to Build a Snowman? can be challenging due to numerous lever changes. But if you love the music, these arrangements will be a great way to practice moving your levers! You're probably not familiar with the piece Heimr Árnadalr but I highly recommend that you try it. It is gorgeous! If you'd like to hear the original film versions of any of these pieces, search for the individual titles on YouTube.
Let It Go - Let It Go won the 2014 Academy Award Oscar for Best Original Song, and it has already become a classic. Sylvia's 6-page arrangement is for intermediate harp players. It is in the key of B minor (2 sharps) with numerous C, F and G lever changes. Fingerings, lyrics, and lever and pedal changes are marked in the music. The range required is 29 strings from very low E (almost 2 octaves below middle C) up to very high E.
Do You Want to Build a Snowman? - Anna sings this wistful song to Elsa through a closed door throughout their childhood. Sylvia's 4-page lower-intermediate arrangement is in 2 sharps, with numerous C, G, and A lever changes required. If you tune your lever harp to 3-flats, you'll need to re-tune 2 of the A-flats to A-naturals with your tuning key before you begin. Instructions about this are written in the music. Fingerings, lyrics, and lever and pedal changes are marked in the music. The range required is 28 strings from very low A# up to very high D. At one point in the piece you will tap on the soundboard with your finger to simulate a ticking clock.
Heimr Árnadalr - You probably won't recognize this piece from the movie, but a choir sang in the Icelandic language during Elsa's coronation. I think it is one of the most beautiful pieces I've heard in a long time. So, even if you're not familiar with it, I highly recommend that you try it. It is in the key of G (1 sharp) with only one F-natural lever change that is easy to make. For advanced beginners, the fingerings and lever and pedal changes are marked. The Icelandic lyrics and their phonetic equivalents are in the music, and an English translation is printed at the end. The range needed is 20 strings from very low G to high E. 2 pages of music. This gorgeous, slow song with lush-sounding chords can be used for church, meditation, and many occasions.
