As we continue to prepare for those holiday performances, gigs and church appearances, it surely is nice to know about new holiday music...especially if it comes from Frank Voltz.
I have written about Frank's compositions and arrangements many times over the years. I think this may be my most favorite one of all! Let me share with you some details about it.
Consisting of 6 pages, this intermediate arrangement can be played on lever or pedal harp; there are only a few lever/pedal changes which are clearly marked.
One especially unique thing about this selection is.... well... you expect We Three Kings to be in 6/8 time, right? Frank's version is in 4/4! Ah, now I have you interested! This leads to delightful syncopated rhythms throughout. Your listeners will turn their heads, thinking, "Wait, what was that?"
Included are a few rolled chords, some short arpeggios, some pres de la table ("PDLT"), a few glissandos and some chords marked touch damp, creating a staccato sound. A few helpful fingerings are included as well.
The page turns are quite convenient and you will be pleased that the Frank Voltz, signature, lush, extended chords are plentiful!
Run, do not walk to purchase your copy. There are also 3 more new Frank publications: What Child is This for pedal harp, and two more brand new original compositions: Forest Green (a fine tribute to harp builder, the late Steve Green) and Romance Remembered.
All 4 of these new publications are just $5.00 each.
Just go to www.frankvoltz.com...and tell him I sent you!
