Resonance FM 104​.​4 "Vegetarianism: The Story So Far"

from by Michael Levy



First broadcast on 5th April 2016 on Resonance FM 104.4, the program "Vegetarianism The Story So Far" featured my arrangement for solo lyre of the "First Delphic Hymn to Apollo" (circa 128 BCE), as background music in a discussion on Pythagorean philosophy:

"Pythagoreans: the third of a fifteen part monthly radio history of vegetarianism by Ian McDonald. This month: even as the ancient Greeks sacrificed animals to placate their gods, Plato and Socrates discussed the people who "abstained from all animate beings." Ian goes to the British Museum with Professor Hugh Bowden to understand the mystery religion of the Orphics; and explores the musical mathematical and (by some accounts) vegetarian cult of Pythagoras. Visit for more information."

My arrangement of the First Delphic Hymn to Apollo was from my 2012 album, "A Well Tuned Lyre: The Just Intonation of Antiquity":
