Musique de la Grèce Antique

This CD is based on the original LP by Atrium Musicae de Madrid, under the direction of Gregorio Paniagua. It contains arrangements of all the then-known surviving works from ancient Greece, including some which are considered apocryphal by some musicologists. The recording uses reconstructions of an amazing variety of period instruments (string, wind, and percussion). Because of the fragmentary nature of many of the texts, the performers have had to treat the material in different ways: sometimes by "patching" it, sometimes simply by playing the "shards" interspersed with silence, drum beats, improvised notes or even dissonant noises. Included is the one tiny fragment that survives of ancient Roman music: one verse from a poem by Terencio.
