Harp music is no longer associated mainly with religious music because of talented musicians like Jeff Majors who uses the harp to perform sacred, classical, jazz or gospel music.
Aaah! The harp. An instrument played by angels. Harp music? At one time there was a debate about whether or not the harp was solely a religious musical instrument. But thanks to breakthrough musicians like Jeff Majors, the American audience has now extended the debate to whether or not the harp is for sacred, classical, jazz or gospel music. There’s nothing like getting a clarification on an unsettled dispute in order to settle the matter is there? For those of you who may have never heard of Mr. Majors, he was the gentleman who performed his interpretation of Psalm 23, “The Lord is My Shepherd”, at the memorial service for Coretta Scott King, widow of Martin Luther King. At a later date, he was invited to perform on the Oprah Winfrey Show.
