We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Monotonic music mainly, with lyre, drum, trumpet and flute, with different "modes" to evoke different states of mind. The ancient Greeks considered their music and lyrics to be central to who they were as a civilization, and, of course, to be a gift from the gods. As best I can tell, poetry (the lyrics) was never offered without accompanying music.
The group Melpomen recreates the ancient sounds from surviving fragments. (Samples of the music at the Amazon site.)
Loved going through the samples on the Amazon site..very tempting.
Don't know if you noticed that sample 12 was entitled Anakreon, presumably in reference to the poet famous for love and wine...and the Star Spangled Banner..though you might not know if from that particular selection.
If you like this reconstructed music of the ancients, it's not easy to come by, but for a really good example I recommend watching the old Terry Gilliam movie "Time Bandits" and listen to the music being played in Agamemnon's court as the bandits make their appearance and getaway. Deliciously hypnotic.
