Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Sylvia Woods' harp music books are among the most popular books for harpists at any level. They are playable on lever harps (also called Irish, Celtic, or folk harps) as well as pedal harps (also called concert, grand, or orchestral harps).

From the Author

If you play for weddings, or any other events, this piece is a MUST! It is one of the most requested pieces on the harp (besides Greensleeves)! It is also fun to play, and a great finger exercise for your right hand.

Sylvia Woods has produced an set of arrangements of the Pachelbel "Canon" for the folk or lever harp. There are arrangements for both an intermeditate-level and more difficult harp solo, harp duet (lucky you, if you have another harper nearby!), and an arrangement for harp and another instrument like flute or violin. There are two sections - one in the key of D (the Canon was written in D), and one in G. No lever changes. Fingerings are included.
The Canon is quite easy to play, since it's just a repetition of about 8 sets of chords. Once you learn the series of chords, you're 90% there!
This is a great favorite for weddings or other formal occasions (first nights, concerts, etc), so if you plan on playing in public at some point, this is a great piece to add to your repetoire!

As a harp student, I was very surprised to find such a selection of books on the topic at Amazon.
Sylvia Woods is a remarkable player (I recommend her recordings also), as well as being wonderful at composing and arranging music. Pachelbel's Cannon is a simple yet beautiful theme, and well-known. Anyone playing for gigs or just for fun should have it in their repertoire.
The book comes with many variations on the tune, including Easy and Advanced Harp Solos, and a Harp Duet either for two harps or one harp and another instrument. Also, you can play the song in either D or G.

This is a beautiful piece of music that is written in two keys, and both versions have a beginner and advanced level. There are also arrangements for harp plus other instruments. The fingering has been added, and overall is logical and makes sense.

Great rendition of the canon. So far I have worked on the easy version and it sounds beautiful!
