The lovely word 'dolcissimo' (very sweet) directs the player to savour the music like honey. Melbourne-based baroque harp specialist Hannah Lane will share with you the sweetness of the great female singer/harpists of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Her dulcet vocal amanuensis is superb soprano Anna Fraser.
