“These Chorales are not easy. However, they fill a need, particularly for the adult non-pedal harpist who wishes to play Bach.
“Several of the Chorales will be familiar. I is the famous Passion Chorale, found in most hymn books with slight modifications. II is similar to the hymn tune To God on High adapted from Plainsong of 1539 and harmonized by Felix Mendelssohn. IV is known as the hymn tune Frankfort, the first line being “How bright appears the morning star”. V is the hymn tune Salzburg and has several sets of words written for it.
“The style of playing these Chorales is quite different from the usual music written for the harp. You will find them excellent for developing “interval feel” as well as for the study of harmony. Every effort should be made to play as smoothly and connectedly as possible…” Lucien Thomson
