Vol. V: Shape-Note Hymns. Nettleton; Sweet Canaan; Holy Manna; Complainer; New Britain/Resignation; Jefferson. A note: shape-note hymns are southern hymns from the 1800's; they are called this because the notes in the scale all had different shapes, a form of sol-fa notation. The tunes are modal in flavor, with harmonies using perfect fourths, fifths and octaves. Plastic bound, lies flat. 20pp. Was $10. Sale $7.
Hymn arrangements by W. M. Govea. These
are for pedal harp and are not easy; however, if you are good at adapting, you might do
these on nonpedal harp. The arranger believes that the church is a good place for harp
players to start performing, as the audiences are quite receptive. All pieces have a
performance time given for the indicated speed.
