Some Happy Snippets Of Lyre Playing Glory
Michael Levy's music will once again be used to add beauty and depth to some interesting subjects – see the links below!
I am pleased to announce that my new arrangement of Dr Richard Dumbrill's interpretation of the 3400 Hurrian Hymn (Text H6) is to be used in support of a new exhibition, "Mesopotamia", to be held at the Royal Ontario Museum, between ...I just wish I could leave the rain ravaged UK to be there to see it!
There will be 43 seconds of my (barely noticeable!) background lyre music playing "glory" again this Wednesday, 5th June at 23.45 GMT, on the repeat of episode 2 of Waldemar Januszczak's BBC4 television documentary series "The Dark Ages An Age of Light"...and an entire nano-second of blazing televised stardom with my name in the credits at the end!!!
The 43 second clip (which I spent an entire day travelling to be filmed for the sadly unused film shoot at the Ancient Technology Centre in Dorset!), is of my arrangement of the ancient Greek music fragment, "Lament of Simonides", merging into my own composition "Ancient Visions" at the end (the clip of my lyre playing can be heard towards the end of the episode, in between some relentless waffle about Goths & Visigoths etc!)
A few precious nano-seconds of Corwen Broch's awesome Anglo-Saxon lyre-playing can also be heard - episode 2 of the series is also available to watch now, on BBC iPlayer:
Don't blink - or you may just miss it!!
