O God, Our Help in Ages Past

Arranged by Barbara Ann Fackler originally for lever harp, this adapts very easily for pedal harp as well. This is part of the THE SACRED LEVER HARP collection of 15 hymns and is available as part of the complete set. Instrumental parts are available with the solo, or may be purchased separately on THE SACRED LEVER HARP page. If you're only interested in the treble parts or just the bass parts, you can find them there.

Skills required: octaves, three note chords (triads of all inversions).
Lever presets are notated (F# only), leaving pedal changes up to the performer.
Range: G at bottom of bass clef and D above treble staff.


Performance options include:
harp solo
harp duo ~ second harp part is free on request and includes a reduced size score
harp and treble clef and/or bass clef instrument

The version on this recording includes additional material used to lengthen the arrangement. The music used was Forever, from The Celebration of Love and required a 2 lever changes as it transitioned into O GOD OUR HELP, then again on the return to the added material.
