The Duckling Swims: A Ukranian Lament PDF Download by Kathleen Blackwell-Plank

For lever or pedal harp.

Here is how Kathleen Blackwell-Plank describes this intermediate arrangement.

Plyve Kacha Po Tysyni translates "the duckling swims down the Tysyni river." This traditional old Ukrainian folk song is a warning of the dangers of war. The lyrics are a conversation between a mother and her son, which you hear in the arrangement as the melody shifts between the right and left hands.

This farewell song in D minor (1-flat) utilizes rolled chords, glissandi, occasional left- and right-hand harmonics, and arpeggios. Chord symbols and historical background are provided.

This 7-page PDF includes 3 pages of music. The length of the piece is 4 minutes.
