History Brought to Life
Michael Levy, a talented musician, has done an excellent job of reviving the music of the ancient world. I can only imagine the ancient Greek symposium where philosophical debates (and drinking) took place whilst being entertained by beautiful music such as this. Or when epics such as Homer’s Iliad & Odyssey were sung to the lyre. I am extremely grateful for stumbling onto his work.
I also placed one of the tracks (Hymn to the Muse) as the background music to my project, An Age of Heroes.
I mention all of this because I follow Michael on both YouTube and Google+ and he routinely posts updates and new compositions always worth listening to. So if you desire to listen to the music of the ancient world, that is ancient Greek, Roman, Egyptian, Hurrian, etc., I would definitely check out his work. It truly does bring the old world history to life.
