Pavane (Style Renaissance) by Paul Wachs (1851-1915)
This has been fairly
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.
