    Hello:

    I am seeking (intermediate) arrangements of Unchained Melody for the pedal harp. I have the one by Paul Baker. Can anyone recommend others?

    Thank you,

    Rod C.

    It’s for lever harp but there’s one in Pop Standards for Lever Harp by Jan Jennings.

    Many thanks for the info. I found the arrangement on http://www.sheetmusicdirect.us

    and have downloaded it already. (Only cost $3.95) This song is also one of my all-time favorites. I did not know about the movie! Interesting.

    Would love to hear your rendition. Any chance I might find it on youtube now or in the future?

    Cheers,

    Rod C.
