    Does anyone know how I can get the sheet music for “Hiraeth” by Grace Williams? Andrew Chan plays it on his website. I have searched the web every way I can think of. I tried to write an e-mail to Andrew Chan but my e-mail was returned as undeliverable.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Edward Witsenburg plays it on his brilliant album “Harp Music From Six Centuries”

    iTunes download available:

    Thanks! I’m headed to iTunes immediately. I still have had no luck finding the sheet music as yet. I’ve e-mailed to Pilgrim twice but haven’t heard back.

    It also seems to be available from Rowlands in Cardiff

    http://www.rowlandsonline.co.uk/acatalog/Harp.html

    Be sure to type “Grace Williams” in the search box, because Hiraeth is a general Welsh word meaning a nostalgic longing, and there are a number of pieces by that name. The lady who runs Rowlands is herself a Welsh harpist, so she will be pretty clued up. I do see the Hiraeth you’re after listed in her catalogue so you should be in luck.

    Grace Williams was a Welsh composer, so the people there are bound to be able to help. If the above fails, try:

    PS: You might email her first, just to confirm that this IS the solo harp version, and not some other arrangement. i think there is only one, but better safe than sorry!

    They are Harp.Com’s British branch, also based in Cardiff (you can get their details from the Contact link).
