The Harp in Distant Healing A collection of texts, most already published as papers and chapters. I have played different harps since 1980, and teach spiritual healing, distant healing and the subtle effects of sound. Can some of the subtle effects of the harp be used in distant healing? What is transmitted in distant healing with the harp? The absent receiver does not see or hear you, cannot talk to you, nor touch you. Anything that could impress them other than the music no longer operates. The great potential of the harp and of similar instruments with resonating strings, was shown to me in 2019 by a group of spirit beings. They specialize in the subject of distant healing with the harp and want to encourage us to discover this potential for the benefit of others. According to them many harpists in the world potentially have a Seraphim energy around their harp, making it possible to send distant healing to humans and animals. Many more harpists can send distant healing to nature and nature spirits of all kinds. I have included numerous experiences and suggestions as to how to understand distant healing and how to adapt our harp playing so it can fulfil the requirements for distant healing as well as possible. Contents: The source of our inspiration; the 5 elements determining the quality of music; 7 levels of conceptualisation of music; doors into improvisation; raising our own vibration.

Focus: Irish Traditional Music is an introduction to the instrumental and vocal traditions of the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland, as well as Irish music in the context of the Irish diaspora. Ireland's size relative to Britain or to the mainland of Europe is small, yet its impact on musical traditions beyond its shores has been significant, from the performance of jigs and reels in pub sessions as far-flung as Japan and Cape Town, to the worldwide phenomenon of Riverdance. Focus: Irish Traditional Music interweaves dance, film, language, history, and other interdisciplinary features of Ireland and its diaspora. The accompanying CD presents both traditional and contemporary sounds of Irish music at home and abroad.

This book is a philosophical tour through the experience of beauty: what it is, and how the composer, performer, and listener all contribute. It explores -- with insight, patience, and humor -- profound issues at the essence of our experience. A student performance of Beethoven's String Quartet No. 10 in E-Flat Major, known as the "Harp," serves as a point of departure and a recurring theme. For the layperson the core of the book is five dialogues between Icarus, an inquiring student intensely concerned with fulfilling his highest potential as a musician, and Daedalus, a curmudgeonly, iconoclastic teacher who guides Icarus's search. Three technical articles, geared to the music professional and academic, treat the issues in greater depth. Supplementary online audio files and musical examples. Markand Thakar is Charles A. & Carolyn M. Russell Music Director, Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra; Music Director, Baltimore Chamber Orchestra; Principal Conductor, Duluth Festival Opera; and co-Director of the graduate conducting program, Peabody Conservatory of the Johns Hopkins University.

The Marx Brothers’ films are packed with slapstick and obvious jokes, gags, puns, pratfalls, and mimicry. But beneath the laughs is a serious and biting condemnation of American culture. This book examines historical events, political practices, economic conditions, manners and customs, literary subjects, and popular entertainment as satirized in the films and considers the ways in which the films were relevant in their era and remain so today.
