For lever or pedal harp.
Archibald MacDonald is a traditional Scottish air that was first published by the fiddler Captain Simon Fraser (1773-1852). The MacDonalds of Keppoch were a very distinguished branch of the Clan Macdonald who supported the losing side in the Jacobite risings in the 18th century.
This plaintive melody is very well suited to harp. In Evelyn Tiffany-Castiglioni's arrangement the tune is played twice with variations, with a four-bar interlude. Two 2-page intermediate arrangements are included: one in the key of E minor (1 sharp), and the other in D minor (1 flat). Fingerings and placing brackets are inserted throughout. It is playable on a 30-string lever harp and requires no lever changes. There are also optional extra notes for pedal harpists and the required pedal changes are marked.
This arrangement of is part of Evelyn's Showcase Series.
