    Just lovely!

    This uplifting compilation CD from Imaginary Road Records, actually the soundtrack to the public television special “Celtic Harpestry at Lismore Castle, Ireland”, is simply beautiful. Especially wonderful are the five numbers by the Belfast Harp Orchestra, an ensemble of 12 harpists who demonstrate remarkable intonation and stunning coordination as they play together on instruments that are difficult enough just to play solo. What a great concept, and what great musicianship! Also featured are individual performers such as Maire Ni Chathasaigh on Irish harp, Rudiger Oppermann on wire-strung harp, Cheryl Ann Fulton on a contemporary lever harp, the harp and song duo Sileas, and Deborah Henson-Conant on a “Camac ‘Baby Blue’ Celtic electroharp”. Other instruments, including Uilleann pipes and whistle, violin, viola and concertina, occasionally join in, but the focus is on the harp itself. In all its many forms and combinations, the harpestry on this recording remains soothingly delicate in timbre while at the same time scintillating in technique--in short, a pure delight. If you enjoy “Celtic Harpesty”, you’re sure to like it’s companion release, “Harpestry: A Contemporary Collection”, featuring more of a worldwide assortment of harpers. Another great harp compilation CD is “Faces of the Harp” from Narada.
