Division on a Ground


This serious Baroque work, arranged for 2 to 5  pedal or lever harps by Erin Freund, features a repeating melody in the bass (ground), with 10 variations in a higher register (division), like Handel’s Passacaglia. The arrangement staggers entrances in the upper voices to create canonic layers. The piece is great for mixed levels, and all parts are edited for lever and pedal harp. (See the description below for notes on levels and adapting the piece for different combinations.)
