HARP TRIO – ADVANCED BEGINNER
The accompaniment is flowing and uncluttered. There is a a descant for the second verse, which complements the melody by often moving in parallel 3rds or 6ths. An optional extra simple harmony part is available, and a part for anyone who feels happier just playing the melody throughout chord names are added to the melody only part, in case there’s a guitarist
nearby who’s feeling left out and wants to arpeggiate along with the harps, or another harpist who wants to improvise an additional accompaniment.
Says Mr. Dunstone: Whenever I’ve rehearsed this with a school ensemble, any other staff nearby seem to go into a serene and blissful state, so it’s definitely a very therapeutic piece!
