    I love classical music! I think that the majority of classical harp music is geared towards pedal harp, though. Maybe not yet in Renaissance music, but after the invention of the triple harp composers stopped avoiding accidentals.

    I’m always happy to find classical pieces arranged for lever harps though. I really like Christy-Lyn’s arrangement of Pachelbel’s canon in D, and Für Elise. I also know that Anne Crosby Gaudet has lovely intermediate classical arrangements, and Josh Layne is great at arranging classical pieces at a more advanced level. “Bastian and the harp” also has some pieces for lever harp on his site as a free download.
