EPUB Ancient Greek Music

Book description

Ancient Greece was permeated by music, and its literature abounds with musical allusions. This is a comprehensive account of the subject that presupposes no special knowledge of music. Topics covered include the place of music in Greek life; instruments; rhythm; tempo; modes and scales; melodic construction; form; ancient theory and notation; and historical development. 30 surviving examples of Greek music are presented in modern transcription with analysis. A brief epilogue sets Greek music in the wider context of a border zone between Afro-Asiatic and European culture.
