For lever or pedal harp.
Five compelling poems by Emily Brontë have been set to music by Evelyn Tiffany-Castiglioni, Nancy Bick Clark, and by Mary Radspinner. The vocal parts are very singable, and the harp accompaniments can be played by advanced beginner to intermediate players on lever or pedal harp.
This collection is dedicated to harpist Dreama Powell. The pieces range from 1 flat through 2 sharps. No lever or pedal changes are needed within the pieces. The vocal line and harp part are printed together on the same page in a score format. Chord symbols, lyrics, and a few fingerings are included.
All Day I've Toiled is set to the well-known Irish air Star of the County Down, also known as the English hymn Kingsfold.
The two settings of Harp of Wild and Dreamlike Strain evoke different moods. The first is Evelyn's setting to an adaptation Will Ye No Come Back Again. The second, more haunting setting by Nancy and Evelyn is to Arrah, My Dear Evaleen, a traditional Irish tune used by Thomas Moore.
The Linnet is a favorite poem of Dreama's and her first request for inclusion in this series of folios. Dreama chose the Irish air Coola Shore.
Song is a Gondal poem set to the traditional Manx and Welsh tune Arrane ny Vlieaun (The Milking Song).
The Wind, I Hear It Sighing, written with somber maturity when Emily was only 21 years old, is set to Far Away, a mesmerizing American waltz composed by Pete Jung in 1985.
