Voices of the Wind
Roger Winfield, Aeolian Harps

There is a power, a love, and joy, a God; Which makes in mortal hearts its brief abode,; A Pythian exhaltation, which inspires; Love, only love - a wind which o'er the wires; Of the soul's giant harp; There is a mood which language faints beneath.; ; So said Shelley of the ethereal music created by these wind harps which, with the assistance of Roger Winfield, are shaped into strange and wonderful sounds - all based on the natural effect of the wind.
