50 Irish Melodies for All Harps

Book by Sylvia Woods

50 Irish Melodies book for lever harp, arranged by Sylvia Woods




Familiar melodies, such as "Danny Boy" and "My Wild Irish Rose," along with dozens of lesser-known but equally beautiful pieces, make up this essential collection for the harper who wishes to develop a broad Irish repertoire. Song lyrics are included. 112 pages, spiral bound.

This is a multi-level harp book, which is designed to appeal to harpers of all ability levels. All tunes in the book are arranged twice. The first arrangement is simple and spare, generally a single melody line with solid or broken chords to accompany it. The second is more complex, with elaborate chords and embellishments. The dual arrangements may be used in a variety of ways - by players of different levels, as duets, and as components of longer arrangements.
