THE LYRE OF THAMYRIS - Single

"Pleasant relaxing melody. Just imagine yourself in the garden in Ancient Greece near warm sea, sea breeze is flowing...

Music to relax and to enjoy life"

Sergey Lenkov - Bandcamp Review of "The Lyre of Thamyris"

 
In Greek mythology, Thamyris (Greek: Θάμυρις, Thámuris), son of Philammon and the nymph Argiope, was a Thracian singer who was so proud of his skill that he boasted he could out sing the Muses. He competed against them and lost - as punishment for his presumption they blinded him, and took away his ability to make poetry and to play the lyre. This outline of the story is told in the Iliad. 

This piece attempts to evoke the particularly poignant feel of this gem of haunting ancient Greek mythology, in the intense and sorrowful ancient Greek Hypodorian Mode, in the clear focus of just intonation.

The piece features the rather appropriately mythical-looking "Lyre of Thamyris", imaginatively recreated in modern Greece, by Luthieros
