Cumha, is a beautiful Gaelic word.  In Scottish Gaelic it denotes a lament and is found as a prefix to many of the old harp tunes.  In Irish the meaning is more subtle, implying a sense of melancholic separation.  Many of us are in a state of cumha, separated from nature, ourselves and source.  Learning the harp helped me overcome my own cumha, and I offer the music on this CD in the spirit of healing.
