Oxford and University of Newcastle Professors Recreate Ancient Greek Music

Dr.s Armand D'Angour and Martin West of Oxford University and Dr. David Creese of the University of Newcastle have reproduced ancient Greek music from documents dating from 450 B.C.E containing vocal notations above lyrics.  These vocal notations have allowed researchers to reproduce melodies from Euripides, Homer, and a few other less well known poets.

See the following link for the full article, complete with audio file of a sample of ancient music.
