* Required Fields

The tunes chosen for this album include traditional pieces, both anonymous and by composers whose names are known. Among them are some of the loveliest melodies of the British Isles, many of them notable for their richly Celtic flavour. When rendered on the harp, they reveal a wealth of unforgettable qualities: here a reasonance of windswept grandeur, there a strain lilting with a haunting lyricism and elsewhere still, a magical shimmer of earthy humour.
