28 Tunes from “Dancing Master”


INTERMEDIATE TO ADVANCED, ALL HARPS. 28 Dance tunes from the Playford Collection with detailed fingerings and editing.  Easy to read, excellent arrangements by Dewey Owens!

The Dancing Master is a vast collection of English country dances together with dance tunes for their accompaniment “to be played on the Treble Violl or Violin.” Mr. Owens has chosen 28 of the most charming and delightful of these tunes and grouped them according to key: G major (E-minor), C major (A-minor), F major (D-minor), and B-flat major (G-minor). Fingerings are given throughout. Lever changes are clearly indicated and the advanced lever harp player should have no difficulty in their execution. Pedal harpists will find complete pedal markings.
