For lever or pedal harp.
Douglas Beck has arranged four classic, familiar hymns about Easter:
Were You There, O Sacred Head, In the Cross of Christ I Glory, and When I Survey the Wondrous Cross.
Here's how he describes this collection.
Each arrangement consists of a statement of the hymn followed by variations. The statement is suitable for all harpists from beginners onward and can be played independently. The additional intermediate variations work well when a church service or recital calls for a longer piece of music. Harpists may end the arrangement wherever it makes musical sense, such as at the end of the hymn statement or an interlude in the variations. Fingerings, tempos, and dynamics are not included. They are left to the player's discretion. Performance notes and information about each hymn are included in the introduction.
Were You There is in the key of G (F# levers) with no lever changes. Four pages of music.
O Sacred Head is in the key of A minor (no levers). Three pages of music.
In the Cross of Christ I Glory in the key of C with easy, clearly marked lever/pedal changes (F#). Four pages of music.
When I Survey the Wondrous Cross is in the key of D (C#, F# levers) with no lever changes. Four pages of music.
