I've been making a concerted effort of late to sort out all the arrangements I have done over the years and to start publishing them. The latest of which is my arrangement of The Arrival of the Queen of Sheba for two pedal harps.
I arranged this back in 2013 for some duo gigs I was doing with my good friend and wonderful harpist, Eleanor Hudson. The idea behind the arrangement was to split the melody line up so that it worked stereophonically between the two harps. The Queen of Sheba is an often requested piece for wedding ceremonies and the melody line is quite tricky to play solo. So the inspiration of splitting the melody line was so that it could be played at a much faster speed than one would normally be used to playing it as a solo.
It's great fun to play, but you have to be careful to work hard as an ensemble to make sure the melody line sounds like one harp.
A list of all my published arrangements is here and I'll update it as and when I have new harp arrangements ready.
It's available to purchase as a download from my online shop on this website and hard copies can be purchased direct from the publisher here.
