The Sound of Ancient Greek - Classical Pronunciation

The Sound of Ancient Greek - Classical Pronunciation<br /><br />Sound clips of excerpts from Homer(Iliad), Aeschylos(Agamemnon), and Plato(Symposion).<br /><br />I don't know whether it's the most plausible sample. Just the longest I picked up in the web surfing.<br /><br />Also try the "visit-also's" there ; Ancient Greek Music and Homeric Singing.

"Humanities and the Liberal Arts" by William Harri

http://community.middlebury.edu/~harris/<br /><br />Web site of emeritus professor of classics at Middlebury. While there is plenty of non-classics content, the Greek and Latin sections are wonderful. Essays on random classical topics, some language and grammatical discussion. He also has commentaries (with greek text) on poems by Archilochos, Sappho, Pindar and Homer. Some Latin poets and prose, too.<br />

So, could someone please either direct me to a site or article (or write a tutorial) so I ...
