Hellenes Hymns


Notes

The word 'music' originally came from the divine Muses, which inspired song, literature and music. Music in ancient Greece was widespread and was instituted in marriages, funerals, religious ceremonies, theatre, and served as an accomplice in the recitation of epic poetry. The god Hermes was said to have created the first lyre.

Most of these songs are modern reconstructions of what ~basic~ musical themes/rhythms from Ancient Greece would have sounded like. Enjoy!
