Lyres & lyrebirds (other string with pre-recorded sound)
by Ros Bandt (2016)
"The ancient Greek lyre is one of the most revered instruments of the western world being associated with Apollo and Delphi. Before leaving Greece I took it up to Delphi for a blessing and to play in the new amphitheatre there. Back in Australia the world of the most ancient songbirds, the imitative lyrebird, the lyres explore a different kind of "ancient" acoustic habitat. Thanks to Andrew Skeoch for his generous Lyrebird recordings" -- Ros Bandt.
Instrumentation: Tarhu/Ancient Greek lyrse, lyrebird recordings.
