For lever or pedal harp.

This PDF consists of arrangements of 17 Irish tunes from the traditional repertoire arranged by Gráinne Hambly for intermediate to advanced harp players. Many are from her Between the Showers CD. Three tunes have two arrangements: one with just the basic melody in the right hand, and another with traditional ornamentation added. Comparing the two versions will give you a sense of how different types of ornamentation can be used to enhance a basic melody. The pieces are in C or sharp keys with some fingerings, and no lever changes. 48 pages.

You can listen to some of the pieces from this book here on our website on Grainne's Between the Showers CD page.

This product is a PDF file, to be downloaded to your computer. We do not sell it as regular printed music. It is only available here in this PDF download format.

While I love many pieces in this book of Grainne's arrangements, my special favorite is "Soft, Mild Morning." Truly there is no more beautiful piece for harp that I know. It is very accessible and lovely.


Fabulous Collection!

If you are looking for a great collection of Irish music, this book and book 2 are both fantastic! Grainne has great notes on each tune, and also gives information on ornamentation, tempos, phrasing, etc. When I began playing harp, there were some more simple tunes I could play - particularly the slow airs. As I have progressed, I have learned more of the tunes - with still more to challenge me. BUY THIS BOOK and Book 2 also!
