Haunting and lyrical. Whatever you believe about the identity of the composer, this is a beautiful melody. Kathryn has created a harp accompaniment that is interesting and challenging to perform. Available in three versions, one features the arrangement by Kathryn & Sandy as recorded on the CD “A Merry Little Christmas” for flute and pedal harp.
There is also a version for lever harp and melody instrument, and another version in a key better suited for violin. 
We love performing this arrangement in concert.

A sensitive arrangement using rich harmonies, the second verse is a harp solo. Available in two versions, one features the arrangement by Kathryn & Sandy as recorded on the CD “A Merry Little Christmas” for flute and pedal harp. There is also a version for lever harp and melody instrument. The primary difference between the two arrangements is the lever harp version remains in the key of B flat throughout, in the pedal harp version the last verse (third) modulates to G major.

This collection has separate arrangements for lever harp and pedal harp, as well as harp solo versions for both (four arrangements). The lever harp versions are in E flat and have one easy lever change. The pedal harp versions are in D major, and have several pedal changes. As can be heard in the audio link, the intended style is intimate and reflective. Intermediate.
All versions are appropriate for special music requests. RoseWynde performed this in concert and it was very well received.

Banks of Sullane/Paiste Fionn Pedal or Lever Harp and flute
This is one of our favorites. We have used it for so many weddings, especially the sweet Paiste Fionn.
Banks is has an F sharp in the key signature but is mostly in D Dorian Mode — (F is mostly natural) It has a few pedal changes which the lever harp can avoid by keeping the F natural throughout. In two places it will sound better to simply omit the F sharp note altogether — your ears will tell you — just take white-out to that sixteenth note.
Paiste is in D Major, but the first eight bars are so simple that the lever harp can easily use these measures to change all the levers. Simply omit the harmonics and play the A octaves 8va in the right hand. 

Ashgrove  Pedal or Lever Harp and flute, – in the NEW VERSION  
Lovely and lyrical. Lever Harp, please make sure you are purchasing the version published by the new owners of Alry Publications, and not back stock published pre-2012. There are a few lever changes.

Simple Gifts  Pedal or Lever Harp (with alterations) and flute
I have listed only Pedal Harp in the score because of the fast key change (D to G Major), BUT  I don’t think it would hurt a thing to just leave the left hand out for the first few measures of the new key and make those C naturals, as there is a shift in energy (becoming more simple) at the key change anyhow. 
This is a FUN arrangement! If the harp interlude is just too much, I have an easy cut marked in the new version of the score.

Tunes: Maggies Lament, Drowsy Maggie Reel, She Moved Through the Fair, Deirdre’s Fancy Slip Jig, Skye Boat Song 
This is one of our favorite works for closing a program. It is truly a showstopper, and quite challenging. It uses the full range of the harp, and because of several quick key changes and use of bisbisgliando and glissando, I would not recommend this for a lever harp.

How Can I Keep From Singing   Pedal Harp and flute
There are three key changes in this arrangement. This is excellent for prelude music.

Be Thou My Vision  Pedal Harp and flute, Lever Harp with edits 
This glorious melody shines through in this arrangement. There is a dramatic middle section of original material followed by a sweet re-introduction of the melody in a new key.  Lever Harp can use this arrangement by skipping that middle section, which has several pedal changes. Cut from measure 43 to m.70, and from m. 73 play the RH pattern only until the LH has made all the D flats needed to finish the piece.  We sometimes skip that middle section when playing this piece as a meditation and want a shorter, simpler version.

Suil a Ghra/Banish Misfortune Pedal Harp and flute, Lever Harp with edits
Suil a Ghra is a poignant song, and is given a slightly romantic treatment in this arrangement. Key of B minor, no pedal changes. At the end the performer has the option to perform this as a medley by dashing into the spirited Banish Misfortune. Banish Misfortune is in the key of G, so Lever Harp would need to make some quick C naturals if performing this as a medley. I would suggest taking a brief pause to set the first one before launching into “Banish”, and then just playing the left hand pattern 8va in the RH while the LH makes the remaining C naturals.

Ladye’s Delight/Haste to the Wedding  Pedal or Lever Harp and flute
Joyful and rhythmic. We use this for recessional music as well as in concert.  There are pedal changes, but lever harp options or changes are also noted in the score.
Mist Covered Mountains of Home  Pedal Harp and flute
 This modal piece sounds misty and moody. Because the F pedal is frequently changing from sharp to natural and back again, I list this piece for pedal harp. 
Idir Deighric Gus Breo  Pedal or Lever Harp and flute
A simple setting of this traditional melody. One pedal change in the introduction is easily worked around for lever harp. One of my favorites for wedding music.

Inis Oirr/Aran Boat Song  Pedal or Lever Harp and Flute
Inis Oirr is hauntingly beautiful, one of my favorites for wedding preludes.  Aran Boat Song shimmers and sways, builds & falls like the tide.
Hush My Babe/Away in a Manger (Flow Gently Sweet Afton) Pedal Harp and Flute as medley, Also for Lever Harp if the pieces are performed separately
Hush My Babe is scored in E Minor (one sharp), and the first version of Away in a Manger starts in E Major  (4 sharps). It’s a fast pedal change, so I do not recommend this for lever harp as a medley. Lever harp performers may want to read Away in a Manger in E flat (just mark it in the score). Away in a Manger then goes into A Major (or change it to A flat Major) There is time to make the lever changes.
Month of January/When the Snow and Frost Are All Over  Pedal Harp and flute
Month of January (in 2 sharps) has a revolving C – C# pedal change throughout, and I have not figured out how to make this work for lever harp. If someone figures it out I would love to know! This whole set is engaging to perform. When the Snow and Frost Are All Over (in no sharps or flats)  has an occasional F#.

“A masterful medley of early American hymns” This collection of hymns has been arranged with strong rhythms and demands energetic performance. In order to perform the tricky cross hand movement especially, I recommend memorizing at least parts of this score. It is much easier to perform this way. This is an exciting concert piece, with complex rhythms and spirit.

Nearer, My God, to Thee – Adams/Mason This favorite hymn is updated by a gently syncopated running eighth note accompaniment pattern in the harp part. One flat, one simple pedal/lever change. We use this as meditation music; the effect is uplifting.
Rock of Ages– Toplady/Hastings This classic hymn is presented gently. Two flats, no changes, includes a short interlude for harp.

The Holly and the Ivy  (Deck the Halls and two carols titled The Holly and the Ivy) Pedal Harp and flute, OR Lever Harp with modifications. This is in two sharps throughout, but measures 47-66 have A sharps and one D sharp. I would suggest a clever performer can write in alternate notes and skip these changes. This arrangement sparkles! My favorite part is the last page, when after simply stating the traditional “Holly and the Ivy”, it turns into a rousing jig. 
Carol of the Bells  Pedal Harp and flute Many pedal changes. This challenging arrangement is exciting to perform. I memorize some sections, especially for page turns and cross hand movement. 
The First Noel  Lever or Pedal Harp, two sharps throughout. Gentle, simple harp eighth notes seem almost meterless. The effect is serene.
