For lever or pedal harp.
Unchained Melody was written by Alex North and Hy Zaret as a theme for the 1955 prison film Unchained. The best-known version of the song was the 1965 version by the Righteous Brothers, which was featured in the 1990 film Ghost.
Sylvia Woods has created both solo and duet arrangements of this haunting love song in two different keys, which are all included in this sheet music. The duet arrangements are for harp and melody instrument, such as flute or violin. The melody part could also be played by a second harp.

#2. The solo and duet arrangements in the key of G (1 sharp) can only be played by lever harps tuned to 1, 2 or 3 flats, and pedal harps. You will need sharping levers on F and B strings. The harp range needed is 25 strings from F (11 strings below middle C) up to B.
