The Song of the Oak & the Ivy

This suite for ten harps, played by Mary Macmaster, Wendy Stewart, Heather Downie, Bill Taylor, Tristan Le Govic and Corrina herself, intensely captures, in four movements, the diverse energies within the contemporary Scottish harp revival. Commissioned in 2011 from Corrina by the ElHF in celebration of its 30th year and the Clarsach Society’s 80th anniversary, it is based on a short story written by Eugene Field in 1891.

**** ”The piece dynamically encapsulated the clarsach’s multigenerational, multicultural identity today, both in its array of exponents and instrumental varieties – from the ancient wire-strung model to the 21st century electro-harp – and its brilliant compositional synthesis of genres, moods and timbres.” Sue Wilson, The Scotsman
