At last! My CD is finished! A 70 minute production of cheerful ensemble and solo pieces, put together with the help of some of my friends. Duo harp, flute, guitar and recorders take up the first 30 minutes. Solo harp concludes the CD, with improvisation and arrangements designed to put the listener into a blissful state of relaxation. Hear samples from “Harpistry” on CD Baby and iTunes.
Also, orders from harp circles continue to be received for my book “Northern Lights, Solo and Ensemble Music for Lever Harp, International Collection”. This spring I will finish a teaching supplement which will aid those using the book as a teaching tool. Stay tuned for a publication date!

What others have said about Bev’s work…
“It takes a special kind of individual to be able to tune out the technology of an acute-care hospital and relate to the person behind the tubes and machines. Bev is such a person.”—Michelle Casavant, Art Program Manager, University of Alberta Hospitals
“My issue is I need to walk. While you played, I saw myself dancing around a maypole.”—cancer institute in-patient
“Thank you so much for providing this beautiful music for patients and families. It was a ray of sunshine and hope on otherwise dreary days and reminded us there was more to life than the miseries in which we were immersed at that moment!”—RN and patient’s family member
“It was something very special today to feel your music. It was so very special to see my wife totally in the zone. You have a wonderful gift and it was wonderful to hear you play. Thank you.”—family member
Julie Darling has worked with spiritual and therapeutic music for twenty years. She is a teacher, artist, flower essence practitioner and fully qualified Harp Therapist.
“Julie is known for the sacred power of her music and the gentle wisdom of her teachings.” – GK
Julie creates music with her Celtic harp in the wild and holy places of the British Isles. She makes art, music and poetry which is inspired by the wild beauty of the natural world around her, and her love of ancient teachings from the Celtic spiritual world.
She works with people who are seeking an experience of deep peace, as well as groups and individuals who are looking for a deeper wisdom – the language of the heart. She holds the belief that music can be the doorway to the inner dimensions, opening us to the light and wisdom that lies within our own hearts and souls. The Celtic harp is her instrument. She plays the harp in the way that our ancestors did, with sacred intent, the spoken word and the power of prayer.
The sounds of wind, wave and birdsong , are woven into live recordings of her music as they accompany the music of her harp in nature, as she creates vibrational essences for healing work – these are the Rosegold Celtic Harp Essences.
Julie also makes ‘Personal Harp Music and Essences’ for her clients – playing the song of your heart and soul, as the Celtic harp expresses the hidden stories that long to be heard.
