Joanne has made a story of this piece. Entitled “Mary” instead of the traditional “Mairi”, it was arranged for one of her harp ensemble members, Mary Keeble. It was written for her wedding. There are many compositional techniques such as inversion, augmentation of music motifs. It starts out in a stately walking manner. All harp parts have interweaving melodies and utilize both the upper and lower registers of the harp. This piece ends triumphantly with strong bass chords played by Harp 3 while Harp 1 and 2 have ascending and descending scales creating a ringing bell effect – like wedding bells. We ran through the piece and put it up on You Tube. Lower Intermediate to intermediate, all harps. Really a neat arrangement!
