For lever or pedal harp.
This ensemble arrangement of Johann Sebastian Bach's famous Sleepers Awake Chorale from Cantata BWV 140 can be performed in various ways:
lever or pedal harp trio
lever or pedal harp trio with violin and cello
pedal and lever harp duet
or trio for two harps (lever or pedal) and cello or violin.
This lovely chorale, originally for tenor, violin, and continuo has been edited for several levels of harp playing ability. The harder parts are the Harp 1 and Harp 3 which have many lever changes. All fingerings are carefully notated. The choral line (Harp 2) is written two ways: a one-handed part with arpeggiated chords and a fuller-sounding one which uses both hands. Also included are the Harp 1 and 3 parts for violin and cello, which may be played with either of the Harp 2 parts. Additionally, Harp 1 and Harp 3 parts are combined into a pedal harp part with pedal notation and some fingerings. This may be played with the Harp 2 and augmented by the doubling of cello and violin. All music is in the key of E-flat (3 flats).
This 29-page PDF contains the lever and pedal harp parts, violin and cello parts, and a score.
