Tunes to Treasure
for the small harp arranged and composed by Isobel Mieras

 

1 Ged a chaidh thu orm seachd (Although you have slighted me.)
This is a traditional Gaelic tune

2 Chapel Keithack.
A beautiful slow air by the fiddler /composer William Marshall 1748-1833. He dedicated the tune to his friend, George Gordon, a Priest, who wrote down many of Marshall’s tunes.

3 Love will find out the Way.

4 Lulle me beyond Thee.
This haunting lullaby goes well with the following piece as they share the same tonality.

5 Saith nos Lau (Seven Light Nights)

6 Harps at Hamnavoe.
Hamnavoe
is the old name for the Orkney town of Stromness. Visiting a harpmaker there inspired this piece which was performed by 201 harp players at the 25th Edinburgh International Harp Festival - setting a Guiness World Record for the largest harp ensemble!

7 Lochaber no more.
One of the saddest and most beautiful tunes of the Highland clearances.

8 Now Bank and Brae are claithed in Green

9 Gartmore Gathering.
Written
for the annual “Summer Harps in the Trossachs” held at Gartmore House.

10 Auld Lang Syne.
This is the tune Burns chose for his famous words as published in Johnson’s Musical Museum.
