This book gives a whole palette of techniques to make your harp playing more expressive and articulated. Subtitled “Harp technique from old Irish, Welsh & Scottish tradition”, the book presents annotated editions of the lists of fingerings and grace notes from the Robert ap Huw manuscript, and from Edward Bunting’s 1840 book, The Ancient Music of Ireland.

Additional sections give discussions of performance and interpretation, and examples from three different tunes are presented and the use of gestures to perform them is described.
