This piece for solo replica lyre, is based on a traditional Egyptian folk melody from Port Said. It is in the Natural Minor mode – which is very common in the Middle East, both now and in ancient times. During the New Kingdom of Ancient Egypt, over 3000 years ago, wooden lyres very similar to the later Kithara lyre of Ancient Greece were introduced to Egypt for the first time, most likely from the ancient Canaanites.

"Hymn To Horus" originally featured on my album, "Apollo's Lyre"...
