Sound Check!

If this works, you should be able to play a music file by clicking on the title of the post. This is a tune I wrote about fifteen years ago called Bittersweet Remembrance. And that’s me playing it.

I’m glad I have the recording, because I lost the binder with the written music in it long ago…a lot of other stuff from that same period is simply lost.

…I’m sure the world of music is crushed by this news…

Okay - how did you do this?

I've been wanting to upload a bit of my daughter's music & haven't been able to figure this one out...

Oh, wow. I'm fascinated with this piece. The melodic structure seems medieval and baroque yet contemporary. I love that the melody doesn't go where I'd expect it to go--but where it goes is perfect. Very haunting and beautiful. Please tell me you have more?

Beautiful. This is lovely. I have pictures of medieval maidens and faerie courts and extremely literate dragons dancing in my mind now. More, please?

Very lovely!

I'm guessing that Carol Thompson must also play with her fingernails, as her CDs have that same bright sparkle. Although to be fair to the pedal harp, the Lyon & Healy pedal harps do have that bright bell tone. I have found the Salvi harps to be much more mellow & like the "melted chocolate" you described, and the Venus harp is closer to the Lyon & Healy bright tone, although a touch more mellow. Supposedly there is a German harpmaker that makes a lovely pedal harp as well but I've never had the chance to play one.
