Why are Angi's arrangements published in the keys of C and Eb?  Generally, lever harps are tuned in either the key of C or Eb.  In order to play in another key (G, for example), you flip levers in each octave.  This works well, but  1) it requires making lever flips between songs, and 2) it changes the sound of the strings just a bit.  By having the songs in one key signature, you can transition smoothly from one song to another, and it retains the sound clarity of open strings.  Plus, you don't have to worry about flipping the wrong levers!
