but her voice rings out,
bell-like and true
She holds tightly to the tune.
Iridescent cherry curves of caramel.
Beauty under pressure,
vibrating on my lap
music therapy for what ails me.
A little metaphor. Here’s the Brittany in question:
Literally true- she keep her tuning amazingly well- I didn’t play for a month and every note was still right! Unheard of in a harp, really. Also, the strings are under nearly a ton of pressure, the soundboard bellies out quite dramatically. (They say a harp sounds at its most beautiful just before it explodes…) My Brittany is cherry wood in the sound box, pillar and harmonic curve, but Baltic birch on the sound board. She’s a very beautiful little harp.
Sounds like an Oprhic hymn – enchanting!
Thank you, Justin.

What a lovely instrument – your harp sounds beautiful. You need to post more videos!
I would have to learn a few more tunes! 😉 (and get much better recording equipment). There’s another one here:
LOVE the sound of the harp. Great playing too.
This is beautiful
I’m glad you enjoyed it. I appreciate you stopping by.
Such a gorgeous sound. Thanks for sharing!
She’s a sweet girl with a lovely voice.
