Harp part for Fauré Cantique

Does anyone have a copy of a harp part for Fauré's Cantique de Jean Racine that they would be willing to share? The orchestration I have is for strings only, but obviously the viola part works much better on harp, and I've heard it performed that way. Thanks!

There are two versions for harp: 
 
This http://www.harpebudin.com/Store/faure-gabriel-cantique-jean-racine-harp-accompaniment-p-4334.html is a great transcription by Marilyn Marzuki that fits harpists hands better than what Faure wrote. 
 
BUT
 
There's also Rutter's version http://ukcatalogue.oup.com/product/9780193361072.do#.UHxoC7ukHZs which is a different harmony than the first. Before you purchase a harp part, you need to know which harmonic pattern you need. The parts are not interchangable.

Many thanks, Ed! Is either of these more likely to fit with the string parts available on the CPDL? That's what I need. As both a former harpist and a viola player, I know which instrument can deal more easily with the moving triplets.
