ON THIS DARK NEW ENGLAND DAY
by Sharon H. Rondeau, blogging at HarpInMotion, ©2017
In 1988, I resumed playing the harp after an 11-year hiatus.
Having retired in December from a 28-year run as a freelancer, I wanted to see if at age 59 I could relearn, memorize and record some of the same pieces from that 1989 demo tape.
An added challenge is my neck injury, which prevents me from practicing hours and hours each day.
However, after approximately six weeks of practice, the piece, one of my favorites, is released again today using modern technology and with the gracious permission of Vanderbilt Music Company, which publishes it.
One of the wonderful things about this piece is that after four days of dreary and wet weather here, it makes me dream of sunny Spain.
I hope you enjoy it.
