This piece, sometimes known as “Air on the G string” is one of Bach’s most popular and often requested pieces for weddings and other occasions. Prior to this edition, there were only a few pedal harp arrangements and virtually no lever harp versions of this piece. Rhett Barnwell has now made this piece accessible for both lever and pedal harp, with both versions included in this edition. The music itself is not technically difficult, but the pedal and lever changes place the piece at an advanced intermediate level. It is arranged in the original key of D, and the lever version is somewhat abridged.
