    This notice came through on 'Cairde na Cruite' (or friends of the harp) and I am just listening to it as it is still available on the website. There's lots of harp music and some interesting background. I thought some of the Harp Society folk might like to listen in, if you want to post the notice.

    THE WILD IRISH GIRL AND HER HARP

    … a portrait of Sydney Owenson, Lady Morgan

    on The Lyric Feature 25 July 2014               RTÉ Lyric fm            7-8pm             96-99fm

    A portrait of the extraordinary celebrity cult figure - Sydney Owenson, later Lady Morgan, who penned the once-famous novel - The Wild Irish Girl (1806). In addition to her writing, she also enjoyed a flourishing career as a drawing-room singer and performer on the Royal Portable Irish harp built by John Egan. Sydney Owenson styled herself on Glorvina, the harp-playing princess from her novel, thereby initiating a fashion for her own brand of pseudo-Celtic dress, and she also composed some quite influential songs, a fact that is no longer recognised.

    Music on the programme includes specially recorded world-premiere recordings of Owenson’s Hibernian Melodies performed by Laura Murphy, mezzo soprano and Una Hunt, piano, along with harp airs played by Boston-based Nancy Hurrell on John Egan’s harps. Contributors include Nancy Hurrell, Claire Connolly (Professor of Modern English, University College Cork) and Julie Donovan (George Washington University, Washington D.C.). Engineering by Ben Rawlins.

    Presented and produced by Una Hunt.

     A Heritage Music Production for RTÉ Lyric fm. This programme is made with the support of the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland's Sound and Vision Funding Scheme.

    LISTEN BACK

    The Wild Irish Girl can be heard live on the internet through the RTÉ lyric fm website and can be accessed at any time for a week after broadcast.  Just go tohttp://www.rte.ie/lyricfm/features/ and click the 'LISTEN BACK' icon to hear the current feature. Thereafter, the programme is available on the Lyric fm Archive."

    A great website in the U.K. which is focused on helping people explore classical music has issued a nice introductory guide to the harp:
