    After a fashion I did. I got a CD with the one and only lute and harp version of the Handel B-flat concerto (Desmond Dupre, lute; Osian Ellis, harp) on it. This is so hard to find that many harpists have never heard of it.

    We spent Christmas Eve, which is the big day in our family, with my aunt and her boyfriend, who moved from New York into a retirement home down here a few months ago. My New Beetle is a bit small to be transporting harps, so I brought a bowed psaltery to sing carols with and German baked goods.

    Three harp CDs I received this Christmas are special joys: one by a Puerto Rican harpist with some of my carol

    The bowed psaltery is what I take along when I have a space problem. I don’t play it otherwise, but then it’s strictly a melody instrument. (Some people add chords by laying the psaltery flat and playing with two bows.) It’s not an early instrument, BTW. It shares only the name with the mediaeval instrument. It was invented by a German music teacher in the twentieth century and it has a zithery sound.

    I can’t afford more than one harp or I would try an ancient Irish/Scottish style harp. It wouldn’t do for my only harp.

    yes you are right, not an early instrument, thanks for correcting me.
