Description

This collection of four dances is reminiscent of the classic Baroque dance suite – with a
contemporary touch – arranged for lever and pedal harps. It is designed primarily for
recital, background or wedding use. However, it may be used to accompany actual
dancing by repeating each selection several times. Chord symbols are provided so that the right-hand melody may be played by any “C” instrument accompanied by harp, lute,
guitar or keyboard. Suggested fingerings are provided as a convenience. However, the harpist should use whatever fingerings best facilitate performance, no matter what this book says!

The total harp range need to play these dances is G2 to C6. These dances may also be played up one octave on any  25-string lever harp with a “C” bottom note.

Review: Dragonflower Publications has published a new piece, Dance Suite in E-flat, a welcome addition to the harp repertoire. The four movements of the suite include an Allemande, Courante, Sarabande and Gigue. Each movement is basically written in a two-part texture, creating a full enough sound to carry nicely in different venues. Counterpoint between the left and right hand creates musical interest, as well as the pleasing melodies in each dance. Type setting is clear. Awkward page turns are avoided as each dance spans two pages. The pedals and levers are clearly marked, and fingering is included. The entire suite should last between 8—10 minutes, depending on how many repeats are taken, making it a good choice for recitals as well as for gig use. Lower intermediate harpists will be challenged, while professional players will enjoy the both the versatility and the beauty of the different movements. — Elizabeth Huntley

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.
