Why transpose Bach's famous 'Prelude in C' to the key of G? It's often associated with Gounod's tune/text for "Ave Maria", and that's easier to sing in G. (And I first performed this with a handbell soloist who needed it in G)

The arrangement is for lever harp tuned in Eb, and lever flips are indicated with "diamond notes" where possible. Some of the flips must be done at the moment the note is to be played. The symbol between the staves in measures 11 and 13 means to damp the string with the thumb while flipping the lever down with a finger (not as hard as it sounds).
