A Public Sphere for Poetry, Politics, and Nature
Here is an interpretation of a song, titled “A Hurrian Cult Song from Ancient Ugarit,” performed on a lyre, an instrument probably close to what the song’s first audiences heard. It is performed by Michael Levy, as transcribed by its original discoverer Dr. Richard Dumbrill. This piece was discovered in the 1950’s in Ugarit, Syria. There were 29 musical texts found in the ruins.
