William Lawes
The Harp Consorts
PRB, 2007
This well-produced edition includes an interesting general introduction by the editor Jane Achtman as well as a separate introduction to the harp part by the harp editors Maxine Eilander, Cheryl Ann Fulton and Stephen Stubbs. They discuss the evidence for and against this 17th century repertory music being originally composed for chromatic early Irish harp. The complete score as well as separate parts for harp, theorbo, violin and bass viol are ideal for study as well as performance.
