"Music for the Irish And Scottish Harps"
‘this [Temple records, 1992] reissue contains 3 previously unpublished tracks’
This is a classic recording of both nylon and metal strung harps, by two foremost exponents of the art.
I’m sorry I can’t precise what the "Airs by Fingal" are called. The sleeve notes might give more detail but my copy got drenched years ago and the pages are hopelessly stuck together!
A delightful album with great ancient harp / piping classics such as McAllistrum’s March and the like…
Tracks 3, 6, 8, 10, 12, and 14 are pure ‘metal’ (clarsach!) for the aficionados, the rest either duets or ‘gut’ solos.
The Bells of Cork City is a ‘programmatic’ piece of the best effect. Some of these ancient airs and pieces are jigs or reels in disguise. Don’t be harp shy (some people are): give it a try!
