A Shaker Melody (viola and harp)


Serena O’Meara’s arrangement of Elder Joseph Brackett Jr.’s “A Shaker Melody” is for lever or pedal harp and viola. Also known as “Simple Gifts,” this famous shaker “quick dance” is a popular choice for many performance occasions. The simple melody is evenly divided throughout between the viola and harp part, and even forms a round, as shaker songs are most often sung in rounds. See also versions for violin and harp, cello and harp, and flute and harp.
