INTERMEDIATE, PEDAL HARP + MELODY INSTRUMENT. A beautiful and compelling duet for harp and melody instrument.This is a mature performance piece, so your soloist will easily be able to interpret their own phrasing. The harp part is 6 pages in length and spiral bound, melody part is a separate pullout page. Suitable to play in church settings, this evocative melody, believed to be written in the late 1500’s, is not familiar as an Ave Maria, thus can be used for all occasions.
