For lever or pedal harp.

This is the fifth in a series of five volumes of hymn arrangements by Hugh Callison. You will find many wonderful titles that have not previously been arranged for harp, from well-known favorites that you grew up with, to songs that are lesser known yet equally important. These tunes have the added benefit of being arranged in keys (from 3 flats to 3 sharps) that are accessible to most vocal ranges, which is especially helpful when playing along with congregational singing. Hugh Callison came to the harp as an adult after retiring from 40 years as a music educator. His arrangements, for upper intermediate players, are interesting and have lovely harmonies. All have been edited for harpability and are playable on a harp with a full set of sharping levers which goes to the G which is one and ½ octaves below middle C (the bottom note of the bass clef staff). Lever changes are indicated with diamond shaped notes. Some tunes have no lever changes, some have a lot. Chord symbols are included, but no fingerings. The left hand in a few of the tunes is quite active. This is the one of a series of 5 books; an enormous amount of harp work.

This PDF is Volume 5: It includes songs for Lent, Easter and Pentecost. 75 tunes, 103 pages.

Here's what Hugh Callison has to say about this collection:
The hymn arrangements in this collection were inspired by a book titled The One Year Book of Hymns. This collection of texts is arranged in chronological order and features several verses of each hymn with a devotional reading and an accompanying scripture verse. After using this book as a devotional book, I decided in 2007 to arrange each of the 365 hymns for thirty-string lever harp. Welcome to my labor of love for God and for harpists who love the old hymns of faith!
