Ancient Lyre Strings (Original Composition for Solo Lyre in the Just Intonation of Antiquity)

from by Michael Levy



“Ancient Lyre Strings” was first released as an extended length single. In this piece (tuned in just intonation), my lyre is strung with natural fibre strings of wound silk (the nearest match to the unpolished natural fibre or gut strings generally used in antiquity), for a uniquely ancient-sounding timbre.
