Come, Come Ye Saints

A collection of fifty hymns of The Church Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormon faith) in lead sheet or fake book format, taken directly from the collection printed in 1985 with the simple title “Hymns.” It includes a broad selection of these hymns to print with:

 

(A) a melody line

(B) chord symbols

(C) editings for harmonic adjustment on either lever or pedal harp, simultaneously 

(D) the first verse of lyrics.
 

Other important elements to consider are:
 

1.  Each entry is placed in one of three categories according to musical complexity.  These categories follow a progressive order described in ten pages of musical examples.  By following these simple models, playing from a fake book format should become a much more accessible skill for all harpists.
 

In Category 1, each melody note is either the root, third or fifth of a diatonic triad.  On the dominant chord in the key signature there may be a fourth note – the seventh.  This is identified by a chord symbol such as “G7.”
 

In Category 2, in addition to the chords mentioned above, there are also “non-harmonic” tones.  They are identified as neighboring notes, passing tones and accented passing tones.
 

In Category 3, chords from outside the key signature are used.  These are called a “secondary” or “borrowed” dominant. 
 

2.  Each entry is identified by its location in the original source “Hymns” (1985) by both page number and also the name of the tune (not just the first line of text).
 

3.  The collection is edited for performance on both lever and pedal harp with clear indications for harmonic adjustments on each instrument.  Only seven of the entries pose too many chromatic requirements to be practical for the lever harp.  Otherwise, forty-three entries are playable on each type of harp, simultaneously.
 

4.  Three separate “Table of Contents” listings organize the entries according to
(A) First line of text
(B) Level of difficulty
(C) Key signature.
 

5.  All entries are given in the original key signatures as they appear in “Hymns.”
 

If you already play from a fake book, this will be a resource of immediate use to you.  If you want to learn to play from a fake book, this is a great place to start.
