Bravo to Morley Harps for making available free downloads of music from their historic Clive Morley harp collection. link here
Lots of interesting music free to download, and for those wanting to practice those valuable sight-reading skills there is now no excuse not to!
Obviously if you can sightread Parish-Alvars you don't need to practice sight-reading, but certainly lots of early classical music that can be used, even if only it is hands separately.
They also have PDFs of historical documents from their collection..... gems include a hand written list of concert programmes 1822-1829, a letter from Wilhelm Posse to JG Morley on the purchase of a harp, and instructions on how to play the Harp Guitar and Apollo-Lyre.
Happy historical harp browsing!
