    Can anyone please tell me how this is meant to be played? It looks like a series of soft glisses…

    Hello Miarae,
    Looks like a translation error. I wonder if it’s a play on the expression “lacrimoso”, “sad” I have seen this a few times on manuscripts.If it’s a translation of “lacrimoso delicato” from Italian in English this would be literally “Gentle tears”. So my guess would be express the music as “sad and delicate”
    Take this with a “pinch of salt” as a folk harpist I am not the best with written music, but it’s a suggestion.

    Wash of sound, ie. softly played glissandi.
