>cwidder is like a harp?

Textual evidence within the first chapter suggests that it has strings and
an 'arm' up and down which one slides the fingers of one's left hand whilst
strumming on the strings with one's right hand, and in the second chapter
that it has a round belly and a flat front, so I think a lute is as near as
need be.

A harp wouldn't have the round belly that looked like Clennan's.  :-)
