RIVER ENSEMBLE
  
  • “Shall We Gather at the River” arranged by Cindy Horstman.  Key of C Major, pedal and lever harp. In 2 or 3 parts (Harp 2 part has option to divide into 2 separate parts. Harp 1 part is lever-friendly). Dreamy, rubato solo introduction leads into a Pat Metheny-inspired rhythmic vibe. $15 (score plus 2 parts).

  • “For the Beauty of the Earth” arranged for 3 harps by Elizabeth Irene Hames. Key of G Major, pedal or lever harp. Moderate difficulty. Classically inspired setting of a favorite hymn tune. $16 (score plus 3 parts).

* This ensemble is limited to 8 - 10 harpists and will play Thursday evening and Sunday morning.

SEEKERS ENSEMBLE

  • “The Wayfaring Stranger” arranged by Cindy Horstman. Key of E Minor. In 3 parts (Harp 1 & 2 parts are lever-friendly, easy-intermediate. Harp 3 part written for pedal harp, moderate difficulty). This rhythmic and flowing arrangement of a haunting melody includes harmonics and glisses. $20 (score plus 3 parts).

  • “O The Deep, Deep Love of Jesus” arranged for 3 harps by Elizabeth Irene Hames. Key of A Minor (G# lever changes), pedal or lever harp. Moderate difficulty. Lovely lyrical arrangement of the famous Ebenezer hymn tune. $16 (score plus 3 parts).

*This ensemble is limited to 8 - 10 harpists and will play Friday evening and Sunday morning.

SAINTS ENSEMBLE

  • “Variations on When the Saints Go Marching In” arranged by Frank Voltz. Key of D Major. For 4 lever or pedal harps. $20 (score plus 4 parts).

Special note from Frank: “You gotta play it to believe it! This ensemble arrangement for lever or pedal harp is in the form of theme and variations. It begins with the theme (March), and continues in Baroque, Classical, Waltz, Fox Trot, Rock and Roll, and Smooth Jazz styles. Harp Parts 1 and 4 have no lever / pedal changes. Harp Parts 2 and 3 have two lever changes / one pedal change. Playing this piece will be the most fun you've had in church since you were a kid in Sunday School!”

*This ensemble will be conducted by Frank Voltz and will play Friday evening. This ensemble is open to all (no limit, as long as you have a harp).
