Coronavirus Updates
Monday 4 January 2021
My online shop is open and operating as normal but due to current restrictions in Wales I have reduced my posting trips from daily Monday to Saturday to three postings a week which are on Monday, Wednesday & Fridays. I normally leave my office at 15:30 (GMT) to catch the last post which is also earlier than normal due to Covid changes by Royal Mail.


Wednesday 16 December 2020
My online shop is open and operating as normal but due to new restrictions and a Welsh Gov request to reduce journeys I have reduced my posting trips from daily Monday to Saturday to three postings a week which will be on Monday, Wednesday & Fridays. With pre Christmas posting at very high levels I need to leave my office at 15:00 (GMT) to catch the last post which is currently also earlier than normal due to Covid changes by Royal Mail.

Monday 28 September 2020
My online shop is open and operating as normal but due to new restrictions and a Welsh Gov request to reduce journeys I have reduced my posting trips from daily Monday to Saturday to three postings a week which will be on Monday, Wednesday & Fridays. I need to leave my office at 15:45 (London Time) to catch the last post which is currently also earlier than normal due to Covid changes by Royal Mail.

Monday 6 July 2020
Our online shop is open and operating as normal but please note that there are still delays with some international deliveries due to the reduction of the number of international air flights. Packets going abroad from the UK might be held by the courier for a few days while waiting for cargo space. The same applies to new stock arriving with us but if we are out of stock of any product you should not be able to add it to your basket. As international flights increase all deliveries will start returning to normal time scales.

Tuesday 5 May 2020
Our online shop has reopened and is taking orders. For the moment orders are being posted on a weekly basis.

Monday 23 March 2020
In light of the UK Prime Minister Statement made at 8.30pm on Monday 23 March 2020 and given the fact that I do not have my post collected but always take it to the Post Office in person I feel that the only responsible action I can take is to temporarily suspend sales from my online shop. I run Creighton's Collection on my own from my home and this is the first time since I started Creighton's Collection in 2003 that it has shut. I will open again as soon as I can and apologise for any inconvenience this temporary closure may cause.

Yolanda Kondonassis
Yolanda Kondonassis draws upon her vast experience working with composers to create new works for harp in her new book, A Composer’s Guide to Writing Well for the Modern Harp. Through detailed and thorough writing, Kondonassis demystifies the vagaries of composing idiomatically for the harp with clear examples and invaluable practical charts that composers can reference again and again as they write for the harp. A must-have for the composer looking for the expert touch in their harp parts.

An Ode to Climate Change
Skaila Kanga

This work has been commissioned by the Royal Academy of Music as part of their 200th Anniversary celebrations in 2022. It was founded two hundred years ago in 1822 by John Fane and Nicholas-Charles Bochsa, a harpist of great renown! As a former student, Professor of Harp and Head of Department at this historic institution for many decades, I have tried to create a piece based on a vital issue of our time, namely climate change. The performance begins with a narration by the harpist, which describes our human dilemma and hope for future generations. Many friends across the world have translated the narration and I extend my huge thanks to them for their brilliant contribution.

Hannah Haynes
This is a book of simple, progressive tunes suitable for any harp with 26 or more strings. The book begins with tunes for complete beginners and progresses through to tunes at approximately grade one level, or perhaps a little beyond. My own students are a lovely mixture of adult beginners and child learners and I have found that the tunes included here have worked well with students of all ages.
