Songs for the Harp
New York: Celtic Heritage Books, 1990. $8.95
“Plant these seeds
from the Land of Youth,
Where there’s neither
age nor decay,
And your old dreams
will come into flower
When your new dreams
have withered away.”
Celtica is a collection of
31 songs about real and legendary heroes of the Irish and Welsh people:
Merlin, Owen Glendower, Hugh Roe O’Donnell, W.B. Yeats, Sean Mac Stiofáin,
and Bobby Sands, and about the Fairy Host or People of the Sidhe. A few of
the songs are in Gaelic. Words, melodies, and chord symbols are included;
the songs are written for the lever harp but may be played on any instrument.
The cover is heavy gold
parchment, with the pages printed on pale gold paper. It is profusely
illustrated with intricate Celtic designs by Elly Fithian. 40 pages, 5½” x
