    I’m in an ensemble that was a violin, cell, and viola ensemble. They
    would like me to join with harp. Right now I’m playing the 1st violin
    part with two hands- but it’s really easy! Does anyone know of
    ANYTHING for violin, cello, viola, and harp?

    Hi Heather,
    Kempter wrote a piece called Romanze, i think it’s op. 43, for just
    violin, viola, cello and harp. There’s also one by Huber called 3
    Short Meditations. An arranger whose first name escapes me but i know
    the last name is Noel did a couple things for harp and 1-3 instruments
    meaning you at most you can use three strings and harp. These
    arrangements are of popular classics like Handel’s Hornpype from Water
    Music, Jesu Joy, the Wagner and Mendelssohn bridal marches.
    Also there is a pretty good amount of stuff for harp and string
    quartet, if you can find another violinist or figure out a way to
    leave out one violin…which will depend very much on the piece. I
    just discovered one the other day by Gallon I think it was, called
    Quintette. There’s also a Quintette by Houdy and an arrangement by
    Lucile Lawrence of Ravel’s Pavane for a Dead Spanish Princess for harp
    and string quartet. Also Natra’s Divertimento for harp and string
    quartet. You can get all these probably from Lyon and Healy or one of
    their dealers, or International Music Service. Good
    Luck!

    Dear Heather, There are 3 volumes with the scoring you are looking for, published by Herald Music, and handled by Lyon and Healy, Vanderbilt, Melody’s Traaditional Music and Harp Shoppe, and Sylvia
