Bringing Ancient Artifacts Back to Life

Re-inventing the ancient lyre and re-introducing it to the modern world is an act that can directly connect us to our ancient heritage. Giving a voice to a musical instrument silenced for two thousand years and more is our way of paying our deed to the great minds of the ancient world.

Sheet music books, also known as scorebooks or songbooks, played a vital role in popularising mainstream musical instruments since the first was published in 1501 in the Venetian Republic by Ottaviano Petrucci. With such an abundance of scorebooks for the guitar or the piano, it is not by accident that modern lyre players are striving to learn using educational material that was not designed for their instruments.

So, how a lyre scorebook can be published when there are so many different types of lyres out there with entirely different tunings, note orientation, or strings’ numbers? The solution is straightforward (but not easy): we have to standardize the lyre as the modern classical guitar was back in the 19th century by Antonio de Torres Jurado, Ignacio Fleta, Hermann Hauser Sr., and Robert Bouchet.

And this is exactly what we have been up to for the last decade. So, this Sheet Music Book is our latest addition to our effort to enrich the available educational resources for lyre and lyre-like musical instruments.
