Description

Joyce Weaver has done a lovely job of arranging 15 tunes for harp and two other instruments. All instruments have separate pull-out parts. Treble, bass and Bb transposing. INTERMEDIATE, ALL HARPS.

There are endless ways this music can be used:

harp/flute/cello
harp/clarinet/flute
harp/cello/clarinet are just a few examples.

Any arrangement for harp and two other instrument arrangements can also be played by harp and only one other instrument, using the flute parts.  The two flute lines are printed on one part for each piece where the melody moves from one part to the other.  The melody is marked with two asterisks in each part where it is found.

In the flute/oboe, and violin parts where there are two note chords, and in the second parts to some of the pieces, the lower notes are preferred when possible.

Dynamics in the two flute parts reflect the fact that flute is softer in its lower range.  When one flute plays with another instrument, it is not necessary for the top octave to be quite as soft.

Oh Holy Night has either two parts with the harp or three parts with the harp.  The harp part is the same for both.

In Carol Medley 2, Bring a Torch  –  it is best to damp the harp on the eighth rests of MM 82-84 and 97.

Skater’s Waltz has a clarinet part that is the melody.  Do not use flute with clarinet on this piece.  All other clarinet parts are the second part, not the melody.

Included are two arrangements without harp, giving the harpist a chance to rest at long gigs.

Table of Contents:

I Wonder as I Wander, What Child is This, Away in the Manger, Silent Night, O Holy Night (2 versions: harp with 2 and harp with 3), Angels We Have Heard, Carol Medley 1 (Good Christian Men, Lullay Thou Little Tiny Child, O Come Little Children),  Carol Medely 2  (He is Born, Unto Us a Boy is Born, Bring a Torch), Skater’s Waltz, Jingle Bells, Deck the Hall and Joy to the World.  The last two selections have no harp part.

Harp part is intermediate with some accidentals, no lever and pedal changes marked. All can be adapted for lever harp.  Skater’s Waltz may be a bit of a challenge, requires full range fully levered harp or pedal harp.

mp3 DOWNLOADS

On our website, folkharp.com, we offer a wide selection of paper and download music. We were always in a quandary about publications having several parts, or that include sound files. After realizing that we can place multiple files into one folder and “zip” it up, we are now able to offer book + cd options.

What we do: sound files and the PDF book are placed into a folder and zipped. The zipped folder is inserted into the product on the back end of the web site.

What you receive: after you purchase, you receive a zipped folder. This is a folder that literally has a picture of a zipper on it, indicating there is more than one document in the folder.

What you do with it: Generally by double clicking on the folder, it automatically opens up. The challenge lies in whether or not you have a program that unzips these folders. If you do, it is as simple as double clicking and the contents are revealed. Alternately, you can right click on the folder, which brings up choices, one of which is “open with” – you then click on your unzip program.

If you don’t have a program to unzip your files you’ll have a challenge! Recently I bought a small laptop for my zoom lessons. This laptop did not come with winzip, or any other kind of program that unzips these folders. The computer kept wanting me to purchase winzip for $29.  I found another program that does a great job, and it is free. 7-zip unzips all my compressed (zipped) folders! It is open source and you can find out more here:https://www.7-zip.org/

We hope all this information is helpful to you.
