Ancient Greek Music: Historian of ancient music Armand D’Angour recently posted the first choral performance with an aulos (a Greek wind instrument akin to a flute) of scores originally written by two ancient authors. The first is a Delphic Paean by the ancient musician Athenaeus (127 BCE) and the second is composed by the playwright Euripides for the chorus in his tragedy Orestes (408 BCE). Each shows the import of music in rituals of Greek worship and within the context of theatrical performance. Full story.
