In the early 1950s, archaeologists unearthed several clay tablets from the 14th century B.C.E.. Found, WFMU tells us, "in the ancient Syrian city of Ugarit," these tablets "contained cuneiform signs in the hurrian language," which turned out to be the oldest known piece of music ever discovered, a 3,400 year-old cult hymn.

Awesome! Not the best sounding work, but definitely better than Justin Bieber.

Sounds like the peaceful village theme in a 90's RPG Nintendo game.
