Are you "beginning in the middle", or a professional who needs to add sacred music to your repertoire quickly? These 15 arrangements of well-known hymns for harp use patterns and shapes that fit harpists' hands easily, making them a perfect choice for nearly everyone.  Keys of C, G and D are included, with hymns in or very near the original keys so that use as vocal accompaniment is possible.  While originally arranged with lever harp in mind, all of the arrangements work equally well on pedal harp. 

Timings for each piece are included and you can add other instruments to create trios by using the supplemental parts (available separately). Both books are available from your favorite harp music dealer. 

Three of these hymns become harp duos or trios when you add the free additional harp parts. 

Second and third harp parts for Whisper a Prayer, included in the Sacred Lever Harp may be downloaded for free from the harp ensemble page on this website.
Download the free sheet music for the second harp part for the solo version of Fairest Lord Jesus that is included in the Sacred Lever Harp.  There is a simplified version of Fairest Lord Jesus available for purchase as a digital download from Pretty Quick Music.
