THE CELTIC HARP
Caretina Bergo Marzolla

"The Irish harp was invented by a goddess, one of Erin's most ancient divinities. Legend has it that one day Canola argued with his lover and jumped out of bed to wander in the night. Hearing beautiful music, he stopped to listen. Soon he fell asleep out in the open. Waking at dawn, Canola discovered that the wind had made that music by blowing through the rotten tendons attached to a whale's skeleton. Inspired by this sight, and recalling the sweetness of the music he had heard, Canola built the first harp."
