An intermediate level arrangement for melody instrument in C and pedal harp of Lelia N. Morris's beautiful hymn "Nearer, Still Nearer." Arranged by Rebekah Lanier, this makes a beautiful and very accessible selection for church services, weddings, and other events. The melody instrument part is appropriate for violin, viola, flute, clarinet, oboe, etc.

This arrangement has three verses; it begins in the key of Db major and modulates to Eb major for the third verse. The harp accompaniment is chords and gentle arpeggiation, with a few glissandos. There are some pedal changes, but never more than one per measure. The C instrument part ranges from Db above middle C to Eb an octave above middle C and follows the hymn's original melody.

This arrangement may also be purchased for medium voice and pedal harp. A recording of the vocal arrangement (the harp part is the same) is available on the album Songs in the Night, available on iTunes and Amazon Music.
