In a past forum, I asked if there was anyone who tunes in E flat on the lever harp who would try to play “Soupir” and let us know if it is possible. I still do not know the answer to that question, but I did discover that on a C-tuned lever harp, one can put the harp in E Major (four sharps) and play “Soupir” very beautifully! All the accidentals are possible, and for those of us who love to flip many levers, it is very rewarding to play this gorgeous piece on lever harp. I even like it better on my Music Makers’ Large Gothic than I do on my L&H pedal harp, because of the brilliance and clarity.
I hope some of you will try this lovely piece on your lever harps and discover its great beauty. I will now feature it in my lever harp concerts like I do H. Renie’s “Conte de Noel” at Christmas time!
Best regards to you all,
