This book for the Celtic harp encompasses diverse songs and tunes from the British Isles, commonly described as Celtic Music. This type of music is often associated with the English publisher John Playford. In the 17th century, he published The English Dancing Master, which contains traditional music as well as tunes of his day up to the Renaissance .Author Monika Mandelartz, a specialist in historical performance practice, follows Playfords tradition by arranging parts of the collection for Celtic harp. Thereby, Mandelartz points out that her arrangements constitute a snapshot in time. Her work emphasizes the idea that lively music always allows for change and variation - it must in order to survive. The book includes tunes such as The Duke of Lorraines March, Nonesuch, Black and Grey, Virgin Queen, I Will Give My Love an Apple, The Scots Rant, Duke of Graftons March, Kettle Drum, Nobodys Jig, Spanish Jig, Sidh Beag Agus Sidh Mor, She Rose and Let Me In, Oranges and Lemons, and The Scotish Gigg.
