Note from the arranger
This transcription is playable on a 34-string lever harp tuned in E flat major and is suitable for advanced harp players.
Frances M. Thiele has transcribed Sophia Dussek’s arrangement of “Ye Banks and Braes” for solo lever or pedal harp. This piece is from Sophia Dussek’s Three Favourite Airs with Variations for the Harp, Second Set (London, 1815). As classical interpretations of folks songs were popular in the 19th century, this unique arrangement is a classical interpretation of the traditional Scottish folk song. Thiele says “it is perfect salon music suitable for almost any occasion.”
