The music of ancient Greece, unheard for thousands of years, is being brought back to life by Armand D'Angour, a musician and tutor in classics at Oxford University. He describes what his research is discovering.

If it's anything like modern Greek music, bloody awful.

oh, so neat. i've read before that a lot of ancient music is considered impossible to recover, due to the lack of surviving notation systems (or something like that) i'd like to hear what some other people think of the methods they're using here. i'm not an expert on music, myself.
