Georgian Miniatures.
A selection of 12 short pieces for single-action pedal harp, but equally worth playing on the modern instrument. Some will work on lever harp with little, or no alteration.

Lorenz Sonata no.1 for hook harp and violin:
Written for the hook harp, this duo sonata works equally well on pedal, or lever harp.

Sonatina in C:
A short, easy work designed to introduce early stages students to the concept of the sonata.  Only one movement requires a chromatic shift, the others can be pre-set at the beginning of the movement. Accessible, and pretty, it makes a useful exercise, but is also worthy of performance.

Andante con Varazione by J E Weippert.
No chromatic shifts requited once the key is set, so playable on pedal, or lever harp
