Ancient Music

Postby Eurysilas » Sun Aug 31, 2008 12:43 am

I was wondering if you guys knew of any sites with Greek or Roman music. I was hoping to find some, but all I found was an independent band that charged for its music and a chanted fragment of Homer's Odyssey (kudos to Aoidoi.com for leading me to that).

I'll try youtube for this. Surprizing how many videos related to ancient Greek music you'll find there, some are real great performances.

Since Mesomedes is the lucky poet to have several of his tunes survive with his words, any search on him will generally include musical info.

Martin West's book Ancient Greek Music is the current standard reference.

Thank you. Hopefully, that with some Googling will produce results.

Scribo and Faylasoof, sorry, but that wasn't quite what I was looking for. Thank you for trying on my behalf, though. :)
