In the Kitchen
This is a new (2013) CD of music played by the harpmaker Tim Hampson. Tim makes really high quality copies of 18th and 19th century triple harps, and on this disc he plays his elegant 19th century replica, in a programme of traditional Welsh harp music from Edward Jones’s book and also a selection of Handel harp music. All of the selections are characterised by the distinctive and rarely-heard variation sets which are very characteristic of 18th century harp music in England and Wales but which are largely ignored by performers today. Tim’s playing is gentle and simple with a very homely atmosphere. A delightful CD. Presented in a printed card sleeve, no jewel case.
