about

Text: Grímur Lárusson (1926 - 1995). Tune: trad. arr. Bára Grímsdóttir.

After a long hard winter, the arrival of spring is a precious moment. This poem captures the spirit of that time beautifully. The text is carried by a deceptively simple melody of just four consecutive notes. ‘Harpa‘ (English - harp) is also the name of the old Icelandic month that runs from late April to late May.
