For lever or pedal harp.
Ray Pool has made lush, beautiful, improvisational arrangements of six Celtic hymns.
Hyfrydol (Come Thou Long Expected Jesus)
Ar hyd y nos (All Through the Night)
St. Columba (The King of Love my Shepherd Is)
Ebenezer (Once to Every Man and Nation / O, The Deep, Deep Love of Jesus)
Slane (Be Thou My Vision)
Ray has included two intermediate arrangements of each hymn: one for lever harps tuned in flats, and one for lever harps tuned to C. Pedal harpists may play either version. No lever or pedal changes are needed within any of the arrangements.
Amazing Grace" uses a pentatonic glissando and requires levers or pedals to be set before playing. They do not change at all during the piece.
Each arrangement is 3 pages long. Fingerings are included. The lowest note used is the C, 2 octaves below middle C.
This 43-page PDF includes 18 pages of music in each tuning, for a total of 36 pages of music.
In the samples below, the first two lines of the version for harps tuned to flats is shown at the top of the image, and, the first two lines of the version for harps in C is at the bottom of the image. These are, of course, on separate pages in the actual PDF.
