For lever or pedal harp.
The Disney-Pixar animated movie Brave was filled with wonderful Scottish-flavored music that sounds great on the harp. Sylvia has arranged 6 of the pieces for harp. Some are playable by beginners, and others are a bit more challenging. Merida's Home has 2 arrangements: easy and intermediate. The pieces are in the keys of 1 or 2 sharps, and 2 pieces have easy lever changes. Fingerings and chord symbols are included. The lyrics for Noble Maiden Fair are printed in Gaelic, as well as a phonetic version. Three pieces have English lyrics: Touch the Sky, Learn Me Right, and Into the Open Air. 26 pages of music.
If you are purchasing the PDF Download format, you have two choices. If you only want a few of the pieces, you can order them individually. If you want them all, you'll save money by selecting the All 6 pieces - PDF Download option. The Printed Booklet includes all 6 pieces.
Noble Maiden Fair - This song is played three times in this arrangement, and the music gets a little more advanced each time. The first two verses are playable by beginners, and the third is just a bit more advanced in the left hand. The music is in the key of B minor (F sharps and C sharps) with no lever changes required within the piece. The lyrics are printed in Gaelic, as well as a phonetic version which was used to help the actors with the pronunciation. There is no English translation. The PDF includes a cover page and 4 pages of music.
Merida's Home - There are two arrangements included in this PDF: a 3-page easy harp version, and a 3-page version for intermediate harp players. They are both in the key of G (1 sharp). There are no lever changes within either version. This is an instrumental piece, so there are no lyrics. The PDF includes a cover page and 6 pages of music.
The Games - Although this lively jig is in the key of D (2 sharps), all of the Cs are actually naturals throughout the piece. There are two easy F lever changes in the music. There are no lyrics. The PDF includes a cover page and 3 pages of music.
Touch the Sky - This song is in the key of D (2 sharps), but all of the Cs are set to natural throughout the piece. There is one very easy F lever change. Lyrics included. The PDF includes a cover page and 5 pages of music.
Learn Me Right - This lovely song, played at a "moderate folk waltz" tempo, is in the key of D (2 sharps) with no lever changes. Lyrics included. The PDF includes a cover page and 4 pages of music.
Into the Open Air - Another "moderate folk waltz" in the key of D. This one is a bit more challenging because it moves between 6/8, 9/8, 12/8 and 4/4 time. There are no lever changes within the music. The PDF includes a cover page and 4 pages of music.
