UM1387 Arrival of the Queen of Sheba

Arrival of the Queen of Sheba
GF Handel arr Lauren Scott

Cover imageThis famous interlude from Handel’s oratorio Solomon has been arranged as an equal duet for two pedal harps by Lauren Scott. The melody is split between the two parts. This means it will be easier to play at a livelier tempo than is normally comfortable when the piece is played as a solo. Both harpists need to be aware of the long melodic line so as to create a ‘stereophonic’ effect between the two harps. Suggested dynamics have been added to this arrangement, but the addition of more dynamics and different tonal colours, such as PDLT, will enhance the performance. The challenge with this arrangement is to maintain its brisk tempi, and to carefully tailor the dynamics so that they dovetail between the two harps. This way the two players sound like one!
