A wind harp is a unique variety of musical instrument played by nature only. It is a stringed instrument that when properly positioned in a window or doorway, allows the wind to move over the strings which causes them to vibrate. Each string produces a sympathic harmonical affect with all the strings on the harp. These vibrations then travel through the sound box and the result is beautiful cords and music that only nature can make.
Wind Harps have the distinction of being the only strung instrument whose music is comprised entirely of harmonic tones, giving them a vibrant resonance not heard in ordinary music. They are played solely by the wind.
Wind Harps (Aeolian Harps) are the oldest known mjsical instrument. The first were made by the Greeks (circa 6 BC). Later, King David had them built and hung throughout his castle for their soothing music.
Due to the inventions of mechanical and electrical devices, the Wind Harp ebbed to near obscurity.
Henry David Thoreau once said that "The sounds of the Aeolian harp and the Woodthrush are the truest and loftiest preachers I know now left on this earth."
