INTERMEDIATE, ALL HARPS. For two harps (pedal or lever), fifteen elegant, stately melodies from the Renaissance and early Baroque periods. Adapted from popular dance tunes, keyboard works and lute songs of the 16th and early 17th centuries.Freely harmonized, they capture the flavor of the period. The “primo” harp part can stand alone as a solo arrangement, while the “secondo” harp part is designed to enhance and fill out the first part. Composers are Gervaise, Dowland, Praetorius, Morley, Arbeau, Caroubel, and the ever popular “Anonymous”.
