In Search of the Music of Ancient Times

In Search of the Music of Ancient Times

Both sacred and secular music were omnipresent in the Greek, Egyptian and Roman civilisations of the classical world. But the songs, rhythms and melodies have been forgotten. What might have the music of antiquity sounded like? This film follows the musicologists and researchers who painstakingly piece together clues to build a picture of the music performed and enjoyed thousands of years ago. Through their work, musical instruments come back to life and surviving scores are deciphered to give a glimpse of a sound world thought to have disappeared forever.
