Ode to Joy
The theme from Beethoven's Ninth Symphony, the last one he composed, is part of the fourth movement and sung by vocal soloists and a chorus. The German
lyrics are based on a 1785 poem by Johann Christoph Friedrich von Schiller, with the text modified by Beethoven.
The tune is also used for the hymn "Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee."
The duet and trio versions below were recorded live at wedding ceremonies.
This piece can be played on pedal harp.
