The King’s Bard review by Margaret Sanzo Sneddon

The King’s Bard – arrangements of Welsh music by Darhon Rees-Rohrbacher

Welsh music has a very distinctive sound that we don’t seem to experience as often as we do English, Scottish and Irish tunes. This delightful collection of arrangements by Darhon Rees-Rorhbacher is a real treat and something a little bit different for your repertoire. As usual, Darhon’s arrangements are wonderfully playable with enough complexity to be interesting. Each of the melodies stands alone but, as she has done with other collections, Darhon has arranged them in a progressive key order so that they can be played together en-suite. As a frequent wedding harpist, I couldn’t help but think that several of the tunes would make wonderful wedding processionals and others are perfect for a prelude. I highly recommend this collection. — Margaret Sanzo Sneddon
