Ten Carols for Two Bk 3


ALL HARPS + FLUTE OR VIOLIN, INTERMEDIATE.  A collection of ten Christmas carols arranged by Darhon Rees-Rohrbacher for lever or pedal harp with flute or violin.   Please choose either Digital or Physical Version.

From the arranger:

“The Christmas carols used in this publication have been arranged for melody instrument with harp accompaniment (lever or pedal).  However, there is quite a bit of interplay between the two instruments as well as some solo sections for each of them.  So, this is
more than just a melody plus accompaniment book.

“Guitar chords are included so that if the transcribed accompaniment sections do not suit the harper or harpist, a chordal accompaniment may be used instead.

“The arrangements are presented in an order that facilitates lever changes between pieces so that the entire collection can be played from beginning to end as a ‘suite’ of carols.  However, individual selections may be extracted as desired.

“If the 8va suggestions are ignored and a few right-hand note octaves are adjusted, this entire book of arrangements can be played on a harp of only 26 strings (3.5 octaves), from low C to high G.  However, if all arrangements are played exactly as written, then the total
range needed is 28 strings, from C6 to B2.

“Dynamic markings, fingerings, breath marks, and lever/pedal changes are provided throughout.  However, the musicians should use whichever expressive markings and lever/pedal adjustments suit them, no matter what this book indicates!

“All tunes were typeset to eliminate any page turns within a piece. Where 1st and 2nd endings are indicated on the harp score, they are only listed above the melody instrument line due to space confines; however, the endings apply to all instruments.

“Three arrangements in this book were adapted from my solo harp collections of Christmas Classics: Personent Hodie, Ukrainian Bell Carol, and The Christ Child’s Lullaby. So, if you own those collections, you will recognize borrowed sections of these arrangements, albeit in a slightly different guise.”

For ease of performance, a separate instrumental part has been provided with this book. However, if both performers prefer to read from the full score simultaneously, permission is granted to make one photocopy of the entire score for use by the instrumentalist.  ALL HARPS + FLUTE/VIOLIN, INTERMEDIATE.
