Selection of 18th- and 19th-century harp music and method books from the Gullo Harp Collection.

Biographical Sketch

Nan Gullo, harpist, received degrees from the Juilliard School and Pennsylvania State University, finishing with a D.M.A. at the Eastman School of Music. She has held several teaching positions in Pennsylvania and in New York. In addition to performing as a soloist and in orchestras such as the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, Ms. Gullo is very active in the musical community and is a founding member of the American Harp Society and of its Central Pennsylvania Chapter. Currently, Nan Gullo teaches harp at Houghton College and in the Eastman School of Music’s CED program. She also serves as the music director and organist at the Lutheran Church of the Redeemer in Rochester, New York.



This collection was compiled by Nan Gullo and her husband, Charles W. Mann, Curator of Rare Books and Manuscripts at Penn State University. Ms. Gullo gave the collection to the Sibley Music Library in 1994.


Scope and Content

This collection mainly consists of eighteenth and nineteenth-century harp music formerly belonging to Nan Gullo. Most of the music is written for the double-action harp, an instrument which allowed for much greater virtuosity and variation than earlier harps could provide. The collection contains etudes, method books, exercises, duets, arrangements, and pieces, thereby providing any harp player with a wealth of literature and with an insight into the musical interests of society during these two centuries. It should also be noted that several of the binders collections consist of piano music which may be of interest to pianists, especially those interested in “salon” music.


Restrictions and Use

No restrictions.



Those interested in this collection may also find the Neejer Collection of interest. This collection is relatively small and is comprised of late nineteenth-century harp music. Also of interest, is the Rosenbloom Collection which is currently dispersed in the general rare books collection and several pieces from the Marie Mellman Naugle Collection which are also located in the general collection.

Series 3: Binders Collections

Divided into three sub-series by instrumentation, this series contains a large number of binders collections made up of music, generally from the late-eighteenth and early-nineteenth centuries. The number designated to each collection has been made by the compiler of this finding aid and has no significance. Please note that there is an index at the end of this series to aid in locating specific works.
