From the arranger: Selections included in this collection were taken from the stage works of Jean-Baptiste Lully (1632-1687) and adapted from his keyboard manuscripts. Lully’s music was highly stylized with many trills and mordents, seemingly “fussy” to the modern ear. I retained the original melodies, most harmonies and much of the voicing. However, in order to adapt them to the harp and make them less cumbersome to play, I eliminated a number of the mordents and trills and retained just enough to maintain the characteristic French “flavor” of the pieces. (Note: I have used the abbreviation “tr” to indicate a trill in addition to Lully’s customary long mordent sign which may be unfamiliar to modern performers.) Some modifications were made to the Lully’s left-hand notes in order to make the pieces appear more “harp like” and facilitate lever changes. (Note: Lever changes are indicated between the staves and pedal changes beneath the bass staff.) Suggested fingerings, dynamics and tempos are provided throughout.
