listen to a sample played on a 27 string harp (mp3)
This festive piece composed for harp by a harpist may be used as a wedding processional, recessional or as a solo. Offered in two keys, D and G (and two versions) to fit pedal harp and all small harps and to allow pairing with commonly requested pieces used in wedding processionals.  It begins with a fanfare introduction followed by three themes offering plenty of material for a lengthy processional or filling time.

No accidentals,  but requires facility with octaves, fifths and sixths. Version I (less complex LH) is easier than Version II, both work with the optional obligato. Over  2 
minutes long played as written, adaptable to different lengths by altering which repeats to take.

 Wachs Pavane for lever free harp
This has been fairly popular with harpists and brides wanting something traditional in style but not "ordinary". The original key of B flat is awkward at times when it needs to be paired with a distant key. This is especially problematic for lever harps that can't change keys quickly between the music for the bridal party and the bride's entrance. This is offered in four keys: B flat (original), C, D and G with the lever part omitting the altered notes making it easier for lever harp.  Click image for larger view.   LISTEN: (midi generated mp3)
