Description: The notes to this release drench the reader in Neapolitan atmosphere (seven full color photos of various sites in Naples where harps might have been played) with contemporary descriptions of the art of harpists. But not a lot about the music. Since some of the composers played both harp and guitar, we speculate that some of the music here was originally intended for the latter.  But no matter; in this case, atmosphere is more than enough. Margret Köll (double harp).
