Sweet William’s Ghost


A sweet tune about the meeting between a ghostly lover and his beloved, for early intermediate harpers.

This lovely tune is another ballad about a ghostly lover, a story with the usual tragic results. In spite of the sad subject matter, the tune itself is sweetly upbeat. This arrangement is accessible to early intermediate players, and features a lovely waltz pattern in the left hand. The second verse takes the tune into a higher octave.

Key of G; two pages of music.  No lever changes, fingerings or brackets.
