The lovely Adagio from Beethoven's Pathetique Sonata is as much fun to practice as it is to listen to. Since it is a melody that nearly everyone recognizes and enjoys, it is perfect for gigs, recitals, and any performance that needs a moment of quiet reflection. Don't worry if the lever changes look intimidating--the chromatic lines are done with right hand only, leaving your left hand free to change the levers.

Two pages; intermediate; many lever changes; key of B flat major. Arranged for any size harp (lowest note C below middle C, highest note third D above middle C).

Handel's Air for harpsichord is short and sweet. In this arrangement for harp, the right hand and left hand alternate in importance. For more advanced players this piece provides a good basis for ornamentation or improvisation. Great for practicing hand independence and scales, but more fun than an etude!

Two pages; intermediate; several lever changes (B flat to B natural, F to F#, Eb to E); key of B flat major. Suggested fingerings included. Arranged for full size harp (lowest note second F below middle C), but easy to adapt for therapy harp as there are only a few notes outside the range.

Fionnuala was the only girl in a family of boys, resented and ill-treated by their father's new wife.  The stepmother eventually turned the lot of them into swans.  I have set this tune with a left-hand that becomes almost a counter melody, with contrary and parallel motion.  Play it simply and beautifully.

One and a half pages of music and text by Thomas Moore; Intermediate level; In A minor (key of C), with one pre-set G#; no lever changes, fingerings or brackets.
