About: Hiraeth am nefoedd is a response to Welsh Harp music found in the Robert ap Huw Manuscript, and uses the melodic and harmonic material of these pieces, employing structural references to the binary form they are founded on. This commission is part of an ongoing project by Chris concerning the preservation, understanding and transcribing of Welsh Harp music. More information on this can be found at Chris’ blog.
