The Lyre of Thamyris

A poignant melody for a recreated, mythological lyre...
NOTES
In Greek mythology, Thamyris (Greek: Θάμυρις, Thámuris), son of Philammon and the nymph Argiope, was a Thracian singer who was so proud of his skill that he boasted he could out sing the Muses. He competed against them and lost - as punishment for his presumption they blinded him, and took away his ability to make poetry and to play the lyre. This piece attempts to evoke the particularly poignant feel of this particular gem of haunting ancient Greek mythology.

The piece was performed on the beautiful recreation of the 'Lyre of Thamyris' - handcrafted in modern Greece by Luthieros:
