Reconstruction of Ancient Greek Music

Post by Carolus Raeticus » Tue Jul 31, 2018 6:26 pm

Valete!

I just read an interesting article (at The Conversation) about the reconstruction of ancient Greek music. It includes links two YouTube-videos with such reconstructed music.

I was especially taken with the reconstruction of the large lyre and the aulos (I had always tought that double-pipe to be two connected pipes instead of two single ones).

Valete,

2 You tube videos that I particularly enjoyed were:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d31jgilfzgQ (the Seikilos Song) and
Peter Pringle's replica of the kithara. The music is absolutely beautiful.:

Thank you for pointing out these videos. I especially liked the one with the replica of the kithara.

You're most welcome. The kithara video is my favourite as well.
