Britten - Harp Interlude from 'Ceremony of Carols'
on: December 27, 2022, 08:27:50 PM
just because it's christmas! the Ceremony of Carols is composed for treble choir and harp; the middle movement is a harp solo. so i made this fun, if difficult, arrangement for piano solo.

the Ceremony opens with the Gregorian chant 'Hodie Christus natus est,' (Christ is born today), and the harp Interlude is a variation on that, so i play the chant first.

there are sirens at the very soft ending, but it is physically uncomfortable to hold the position for too long so i didn't do a second take. sue me
