Sheet Music: Score
Neheh : trio for flute, violin and cello / May Lyon.
by May Lyon (2016)
Neheh explores five deities in the ancient Egyptian
mythology, attempting to express through music their associated
celestial bodies, elements, and / or parts in Egyptian cosmogony.
Time in ancient Egypt was considered to be cyclic and eternal and
was represented by the words "neheh' and "djet". Although there
is no exact translation, "neheh" loosely represents Amun-Ra's
continuous travel through the sky and the underworld.
Amun-Ra: Sun - The Creator
Khonsu: Moon - The Marker of Time
Sekhmet: Goddess of War - Desert Fire / The Lioness
Shu: God of Air
Osiris: God of the Underworld - Death, Immortality & Resurrection
