Music of Spey by J. Scott Skinner and Willafjord (trad) arranged for three-part harp ensemble by Laura Zaerr
Rich interweaving of 3 harp parts for these two tunes. Harp 3 is easy, harps 2 and 1 are intermediate with neither part having any difficult passages of note. Playing in ensemble is so much fun, and when you have these traditional tunes arranged expertly by Laura Zaerr, this is really a joy. There are some harmonics and glisses, no accidentals. Some scale passages and one two-handed descending then ascending arpeggio. Syncopation in Willafjord. There is a section of percussive tapping on the soundboard. Uplifting ending. One key change is easily accessible with two measures of preparation. Harp 1 has notes in right hand only, harp 2 has one measure of rest and a whole note in the bass second measure, harp 3 has no notes for two measures. Historical notes on each tune. Entirely spiral bound, no pull-out individual harp parts. All parts and score are contained within the book. LOWER INTERMEDIATE TO INTERMEDIATE, ALL HARPS.
