Franklin’s Glass Harmonica in Action

I did a post some time back on Marianne Davies who was something of a protege and performed across Europe with her soprano sister, but it is rare to actually hear it played. So enjoy this lovely sound. It seems perfect choice for Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy. Or music about any fairy.
