ANCIENT LYRE STRINGS - Ancient Roman-Themed Single

"Hear the Wonderful Sound from the Past...

There are many impressive records of Ancient Greek music but the question remains the same: how this music really sounded in Antiquity? The problem is that the Greeks and the Romans used the gut strings, but how to re-create these strings in modern conditions? Researcher Peter Pringle supposed that silk strings could sound most close to these Ancient world strings. Michael Levy wrote new music for lyre using just intonation. The result is pleasant melody and it'd hard to believe that we are hearing strings made not from metal but from natural live material - the silk. So it's not authentic Ancient Greek music but this track gives us possibilty to imagine how it sounded.

By the way, records by Michael could be helpful for the teachers of history - from my own experience I could say that some kids are listening to his records with the interest"
