Claire Hamilton, Wales
In ancient times the sound of the harp was said to ease the passage of the departing spirit as it travelled from this world to the next. Having harp music at a funeral can therefore be both soothing and significant. The delicate sound of the harp helps ease the sad atmosphere while guests assemble and lifts the heart into spiritual realms.
Claire considers it a privilege to bring her harp to such an occasion and let it work its healing. For this reason she is prepared to come and play for a very reasonable fee.
