Dance of the Harps


A beautiful and almost haunting original piece.  It has and underlying 3/4 time swaying rhythm.  The melody is shared between the first and second harp while the third part provides underlying rhythm.  The sharply contrasting middle part is much faster and jig-like, becoming a spirited dance.  Following the faster middle section, the ensemble returns to the original melody but with greater intensity and rhythmic vitality. Layers upon layers of rich harmonies and a dramatic conclusion. Score is 24 pages. Individual harp parts included and are 8 pages each. Occasional lever changes required (Bb to B) on all parts one, two and three. INTERMEDIATE.
