The majestic and relaxing qualities of a magnificent ancient instrument are celebrated in this collection of pristine performances where we hear David Michael in his element, serving up soothing melodies as deep reflections of nature and prayerful offerings for peace in a troubled world. The warm, gently rocking effect of the Celtic harp makes the music suitable, not only for thoughtful contemplation, but for massage, yoga and other healing arts whose practitioners have relied on David's music for years.

This album features solo harp until the final 15-minute piece Methow Reverie where David is joined by Richard Russel (AKA Rick Henderson) on sarode, a 25-string fretless lute from India. These two musicians have collaborated for decades. Richard’s playing on the Petals in the Stream CD helped propel that recording to international acclaim. He also plays a prominent role on the recent Confluence album.

Reviews

David Michael displays his genius on the Celtic harp… While soothing, Heart of the Harp has a lift and bounce to it. The listener is not only relaxed, but reassured and directed to the sunny side of the street. One track has some extra texture from sarodist Rick Henderson, and this unconventional blend works brilliantly.”

— Tom Peterson, Victory Review

David Michael provides a shimmering dance of melodic tones from his Celtic harp...He is well-versed in many musical styles. There are reminiscences of Celtic dances, of Middle Eastern melodies, of music box-like magic. The final track adds sarode and the results of bringing these very different instruments together are truly gratifying. Michael is a master of the harp and he brings a sprightly creative energy to the melodies he pulls from it. This is highly recommended. ”
