What ancient Greek music truly sounded like remains generally shrouded in mystery. Only occasional finds and inscriptions shed some light on the matter.
As developed earlier in the post Another reconstruction of ancient Greek music, I inserted a soundtrack composed by
David Creese, a classist
from the . University
Today, I traced what is called the “pre-final edition” of the first choral performance with aulos of a composition by a certain Athenaeus’ of his Delphic Paean from 127 BC and another one written by Euripides for his chorus in Orestes from 408 BC.
The explanation is given by Armand D'Angour, whom I quoted in my earlier post Reconstructing ancient Greek Music, an impossible task? Enjoy!
