For lever or pedal harp.
Carol Wood has composed three beautiful modal compositions for low voice and lever or pedal harp. The lyrics are from the Christmas poetry of Thomas Hardy, Kenneth Grahame and G. K. Chesterton. There are no lever or pedal changes needed within the music. Chord symbols are included, and only a very few fingerings. The vocal and harp parts are printed on the same page in a score format. The harp parts are for advanced beginner to intermediate harp players. The harp does not play the melody, so these pieces can NOT be played as harp solos.
The Oxen is one of Thomas Hardy's best-loved poems. Carol's composition is in the D dorian mode in the key of C tuning (no sharps or flats). The vocal range is from the F below middle C up to the G above middle C. The lowest harp note is the D almost 2 octaves below middle C. 6 pages. Carol has also included optional parts for other instruments for this piece: Solo Bass Clef Instrument, Solo Treble Instrument, C Instrument, and C Whistle.
