    I believe there’s harp in the Moody Blues song “Knights in White Satin”.

    Who did the harp parts in a song called “Aurora” by Bj?rk? Also, who is the harpist that
    played “Fluffy’s Harp” from the movie Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone?

    I’d love to find out who played the extensive harp solo with George Michael in “I Remember You” off of his Songs from the Last Century album. Do you think that music is available somewhere??

    The harp on Beatles “She’s leaving home” was played by Sheila Bromberg, the first female musician to appear on a beatles record. found: http://aristoteles.ciencias.uchile.cl/beatles/songs/slh.html and other sites.

    The best books for beatles-songs concerning instrumentation, authorship etc. are: Ian McDonald: Revolution in the Head and Mark Lewinsohn: The Beatles Recording Sessions
