Harp - Early Intermediate - Digital Download
Composed by Traditional. Arranged by Svetlana Yatsky. Christian, Gospel, Spiritual, Sacred, Folk. 4 pages. Published by Svetlana Yatsky (S0.29423).

Item Number: S0.29423

An easy harp arrangement of the traditional Appalachian song, or, as some say, a spiritual (another name "Down to the Valley to Pray"). A great piece for special church services such as communion or baptism. Because of it's words and the steady beat it is a great processional as well. A serene and calm flow of the song will set a nice contemplative mood and will sooth the hearts of your audience. Level wise, it is a very versatile piece: a beginner/early intermediate may play Part A and finish the song with the Part E, intermediate will be able to play most of the parts skipping Part C which is more advanced. Turn this piece into a duet or a trio, etc. Add more instruments as the song progresses: for e.g., make first instrument repeat first part while other instruments are joining one by one, and let the advanced player take the lead at the part C, while other instruments roll the chords as an accompaniment, etc. 4 pages. To hear the song, please, visit Svetlana Yatsky's YouTube channel. .
