Sophia Dussek (1775- c.1831)
Edited Mike Parker

This set of airs is believed to date from between 1800 - 1812 and is number 7 of 9 sets arranged by Sophia Dussek. The three Airs are light, charming and well considered for the instruments.‘Drink to me only’, is a slight variant of the tune commonly used for the poem ‘To Celia’ by Ben Johnson, ‘’La mia crudel tiranna’, is Italian, the tune later used by Shield for his song ‘The maid of Lodi’. And the last air is a Scottish song and dance tune, ‘My ain kind deary o’. The first two are set with distinct, numbered variations whilst the last is set more in the style of a rondo. This publication benefits from a comprehensive Forward, including notes on ornamantation by Mike Parker

The Garland of LoveThe Garland of Love Ref: SM653
Sophia Dussek arr. Bonnie Shaljean
This charming piece is from a period source, unpublished in modern times, and the present edition includes two transcriptions, one for pedal harp in the key of Eb (as it appeared originally) and another for Celtic harp. The latter has been transposed a semitone down into D in order to fit within the usual range of the smaller instrument (no notes have been omitted). In fact the lower key sounds closer to authentic late 18th-century pitch than modern Eb does, as concert “A” has risen considerably in the intervening centuries.
