Fires at Midnight

I have had my "big" harp for a year now and am learning some tunes from the old "Scottish Music Graded Exams for Harp" book - still grade one though!

I say "old" as the Scottish exam board have changed their syllabus so my harp teacher got lots of the books for a good price. I'm not really intending to take an exam at my age, especially as my son says I don't really need it for my CV now, but it is a good structure to work through all the same.

So my latest favourite tune is "Fires at Midnight". It is recent gentle waltz composition by Wendy Stewart.

I started with a Wendy Stewart tune, "The Streams of Abernethy" back in March 2014. It was my first tune after I started lessons. I made this journal page back then.

Anyway I have tried to record "Fires at Midnight". This is my 9th attempt and I still haven't mastered it but I am working on it.

My previous recording was in April 2015 of a piece called "Charlotte in Spring"
