"Hymn to Terpsichore" - an engeretic invocation to the Ancient Greek Muse of Dance!

In ancient Greek mythology, Terpsichore (Τερψιχόρη, "delight in dancing") is one of the nine Muses and goddess of dance and chorus. She lends her name to the word "terpsichorean" which means "of or relating to dance" - this single features a spontaneous, rhythmic improvisation for my marvellously mythological looking "Lyre of Thamyris"; handmade in modern Greece by Luthieros:


The authentic carved horn plectrum, besides being great for 'block & strum' lyre playing techniques, can also be used for some fantastic percussive effects, perfect for evoking the ancient Greek Muse of Dance, simply by beating the skin soundboard of the lyre - just as acoustic guitarists often spontaneously add rthymn to their playing by tapping the body of their guitar.
