Autumn’s Featured Harp Music:

For this season’s featured harp music we have the two Group Tunes from the 2023 PSFHS Summer Folk Harp Retreat. (If you have a PSFHS Harpers’ Songbook, please print both of these tunes and add them to your book to keep it up to date.)

Jerusalem is a hymn tune used for many formal occasions, especially in England, and was composed by Sir Hubert Parry in 1916 using words from a poem written by William Blake. The theme from Jupiter, from Gustav Holst’s orchestral suite “The Planets”, became so popular as a stand-alone piece that it too was used for a hymn tune which Holst dubbed “Thaxted” after the village in which he lived. Either of these tunes are appropriate for weddings, memorials, or other events, and both sound beautiful on the harp.

To view or print the notation, press PDF; to listen to the melodies, press MP3 Audio.
