About

Since forming in 2000, the sound of 4 Girls 4 Harps has been heard in numerous venues and festivals in the UK and across Europe. The quartet has performed live on Friday Night is Music Night (BBC Radio 2). Their debut CD, ‘Fireworks and Fables’, was David Mellor’s ‘CD of the Week’ on Classic FM and has been broadcast on BBC Radio 2 and Radio 3

This CD presents exciting new works alongside transcriptions of classic pieces which shows off the full scope of four concert harps.

For centuries, the harp has been associated with heaven and angels. There are many beautiful images depicting angels playing golden harps, often adorning stained glass windows, Christmas cards, and as decorations on the Christmas tree. December is one of the busiest months in a harpist’s calendar. From the harp solo in Tchaikovsky’s ballet ‘The Nutcracker’, to Benjamin Britten’s ‘A Ceremony of Carols’ for choir and harp, the warm, sparkling tones of a harp really help to make the festive season even more special! It was their love of Christmas, and the exquisite music associated with it, that inspired them to create this collection of their favourite carols and arranged them in a variety of styles. From traditional choral anthems, to rustic folk influences and jazz harmonies, each carol has been carefully selected.
