One thought on “National Harp Day 2018”

  1. The elegant green harp to the right of the stove (which was not on!) is a Morley, from the late h century; the house is named after it. Reidun used this harp to demonstrate an early system for chromatic tuning (i.e., giving the sharps flats). Just below the tuning pin, each string has a small metal blade, which can be turned to shorten the string and produce a note one semitone higher.
