Heaven, Halos, and Harps -- these were part of a rich mix of audio, visual, and theological images growing up in a manse with a pastor for a father. Music, mostly classical, was a constant presence in our home -- as were the multiple implications of heaven. My tastes leaned to the killer B's: Bach, Beethoven, and James Brown. But during the holiday season the house was sweet with the sound of Benjamin Britten's marvelous Ceremony of Carols scored for choir and harp. In that environment the sonorities of the instrument were so genial that a part of my musical imagination always included the harp even as I ended up playing other stringed instruments: guitar and electric bass in bluegrass, jazz, and r&b bands, as well as percussion for dance classes. I recently found a virtual harp whose nuanced sound inspired the writing of these pieces, the third in a series of Music for Imaginary Instruments. Staying within the parameters of a traditional harp it becomes possible to suggest a live performance. However, if the demands of the music and the eccentricities of my imagination call for it, I can throw caution (and physics) to the wind, composing pieces that could only be performed by a virtual harpist . . . with or without the halo.
