Between 5-7 pm GMT, the Historical Harp Society of Ireland chair, Siobhán Armstrong, will be representing Ireland at this pan-European event with a programme “The Sound So Melting…”: Ireland’s Medieval Harp and Its Music. Siobhán introduces the early Irish harp, the sources for its music and the music itself in this celebration of the first European Day of Early Music.
All welcome – either to the Moore Institute itself, or on-line on U-Sophia.com. This is one of many events all over Europe celebrating the European early music heritage on March 21, many of which are also available on-line.
The Galway event is organised by Galway Early Music, the M. A. Medieval Studies, NUI Galway, and the Historical Harp Society of Ireland. European Day of Early Music has been established by the European Early Music Network REMA (http://rema-eemn.net/).
