Celebrate the theme and the variations of Christmas with harpist Megan Reeve as she explores Christmas music from around the world and across the ages.
From classical to folk, from sweeping glissandi to the strikingly contemporary, the range and diversity of the harp always entrances and amazes.
Throughout history composers have been drawn to the combination of the flute and harp, from the shepherd’s pan pipes and Orphean lyre of ancient Arcadia, to the French court of Marie-Antoinette and Mozart’s duo concerto.
Each of the eleven tracks on this recording is a song without words. Although written over a number of years, each of these pieces by composer Andrew Blyth is characterised by a concern for simplicity and directness of expression.
