I just completed this very special 10 string Lyre. It is designed to be a possible re-creation, of a 12th century French /English Lyre that perhaps would have been played in the court of Henry II and Elanor of Aquatint. I built it to be played on stage during a semi-professional production of 'The Lion in Winter', at the Camelot Theater in Talent Oregon. It is built with 40 year air-dried Engelman Spruce and Black Walnut, with gold leaf work, painted decoration and crystal inlays.
