Robert ap Huw's Harp Technique
Click here for article.
This is an article based on a paper I presented at the 1995 symposium on Robert ap Huw, sponsored by the Centre for Advanced Welsh Music Studies. It was published in Welsh Music History 3 by the University of Wales Press in 1999, which is currently out of print, but is now available through Welsh Journals Online.
Whilst I still stand by many of the ideas I presented then, some of the details have changed. Amongst them is my notation for explaining the interpretation in Figure 2 of the patterns, or gestures, found on page 35 of the manuscript. A free downloadable pdf of my current interpretation is available from the website of the Wire Branch of the Clarsach Society.
