Description

We are so happy to have this book back as part of our inventory.  It was one of the first books we carried when our store was very young. Way back then, the lever harp was not necessarily accepted with open arms by a majority of teachers.  This book was very welcomed by students of all ages who played the Lyon and Healy Troubadour harp.    Since then, of course, a multitude of fabulous lever harps have been created and the lever harp is now mainstream and well accepted. This book is timeless!

Barbara Fackler has this to say about her arrangements:

There are many creative ways to play these arrangements. Use them as a starting point and make the music your own. Dynamic markings have not been included in every selection in order to allow room for individual musical expression. A unique and thoughtful interpretation of any piece of music can be found by controlling the direction of the musical lines with subtle phrasing and dynamics. Use your skills to the fullest as you make decisions about this music. Music that suits your ear and abilities becomes the most satifsying to play and to share with others.
The solos exist independently of the ensemble parts which may be added as you wish. Harp duo parts can be combined with the instrumental parts as you wish. While the treble parts were created with flute in mind, any C instrument with the proper range can play them. The same is true of the bass clef parts which were created for cello. Adapt as needed. The intent of these arrangements is that they be accessible to as many harpists as possible. I have watched my students make creative use of this music, showing me interesting combinations and alterations as they incorporated their own ideas to the notes on the page. They’d pair two hymns together, not always using all of each, making my arrangements into their own personal expression. They have embellished the music by expanding chords, repeating sections, or changing octaves. It is my hope that you will do the same.

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.
