This song is a fun, tongue in cheek English folk song called Twickenham Ferry. The song was written by Theo Marzials in 1878 to commemorate the ferry. There is a short history on line about the Twickenham Ferry, which used to cross the Thames River from the 1600's until 1970. Theo Marzials was an eccentric artistic poet and composer. I happened upon this cute little tune in a boxlot of old sheet music. It is an 1888 copy published by Kunkel Bros. for voice and piano. I decided it would make a great addition to my "folk harp and friends" arrangements. This arrangement can be sung by guy or gal. It is in the key of C major. The range is an octave and a fourth - from low G below the staff to C on the 3rd space on the staff. There are no accidentals for the harpist. The accompaniment is simple, chordal, and compact for the harpist to play on the smallest of folk harps. The violin part is easy also, but be prepared to take on some attitude! My folk arrangements are made for musically mature amateur musicians who might need some repertoire for church or recital or entertainment performances. If there is no harpist aboard, feel free to use a keyboard. You get a score for the vocalist, and separate harp and violin parts. Shipping is $2.50. See my other listings of my own compositions.
