ANCIENT LYRE MUSIC FOR MEDITATION - Ambient/Meditative Compilation Album



"Michael Levy explores the world of ancient instruments by giving possibility to the listeners to feel the textures of lyre's sound. 
It's no real Ancient Greek music but this album shows the way to understand its charm. In the same time Michael Levy reinvents ancient world instruments as a part of our modern world musical culture. Favorite track: Ascension of the Lyre (Harp: Rebecca Penkett Lyre: Michael Levy)."

Sergy Lenkov - Bandcamp Review of "Ancient Lyre Music For Meditation"


This compilation album features a selection of my most meditative tracks, which were first featured in a wide selection of my earlier releases between 2013-2017, in addition to this new track, "Etude in the Olympos Pentantonic Scale" - a spontaneous improvisation in this haunting ancient Greek tuning, for my stunningly authentic custom-built Luthieros replica ancient Greek tortoise shell lyre, with a perfectly preserved natural tortoise shell and authentic gut strings:

MUSICAL ADVENTURES IN TIME TRAVEL - Compilation Album

"Trans-Millennial Journey...

Michael Levy's works have accurately been described by iTunes (USA) as "tranquil, soothing, and hauntingly beautiful." His transcendent compositions in "Musical Adventures in Time Travel", which can hardly be more aptly titled, live up to that description and confront the listener with a world that is distant and alien, yet at the same time "familiar" in a deeply primordial sense. Prepare to be transported from your 21st-century surroundings and petty modern concerns...to a windswept rocky outcrop on a Mediterranean trading route -- or a mystical sandstone temple, lit by fire and imbued with the presence of gods long forgotten...."

David - Amazon (USA) Review


This compilation album is a unique collection of some of the very best tracks from my my albums of ancient lyre music, first released between 2012 - 2013.

On this “Musical Adventure in Time Travel”, I attempt to recreate a lost vista of ancient landscapes, transporting the listener to a distant, ancient past; 
featuring my new arrangement of Dr. Richard Dumbrill's magnificent interpretation of the 3400 year old Bronze Age Hurrian Hymn (Text H6) from ancient Ugarit; the oldest known written fragment of a melody which can still be interpreted today - this time, performed in the beautifully pure and authentic just intonation of antiquity...

ANCIENT LANDSCAPES - Compilation Album

"A Beautiful Minimalist Masterpiece...

This album will consume you and take you far away. You must at least listen to the samples available, it won't take you long to feel the effects of this music. If you're new to the music of Michael Levy, this is a great place to start, as it contains a taste from his various albums. Highly recommended"

 DJG Mike - iTunes (Canada) Review

This first compilation album, "Ancient Landscapes", features a selection of some of my personal favourite tracks from my albums released between 2008 - 2011...

"Amazing, Wonderful, Beautiful...

Not only is this historically significant,the music is really soulful & moving. I consider this one of my best musical discoveries in 2010. Highly recommended!"

Steven Goodheart - iTunes Review (USA)  

This is album is a unique compilation of ancient musical themes from around the ancient world, featuring one of the widest variety of 'destinations' in my 'Musical Adventures in Time Travel' - evoking the music of ancient India with opening track, which features an improvisation for solo lyre in an exotic sitar tuning, my arrangement for solo lyre of the 3400 year old "Hurrian Hymn Text H6" from ancient Ugarit (the earliest surviving fragment of written music so far discovered which can be interpreted), evoking the music of ancient Egypt with my arrangements for solo lyre of a selection of traditional Egyptian folk songs from Port Said and an improvisation on an actual ancient Egyptian scale, as well as my first arrangements for solo lyre of some of the actual surviving music of ancient Greece...

In addition to my official releases available from all major digital music stores and streaming sites, inspired by my new patrons who have been supporting my music on Patreon, I am am now offering a tailor-made, custom compilation album service for anyone who requests it!

Indeed, I was recently contacted by a YouTube fan from Canada, disillusioned with the compressed MP3's available from all of the main digital music stores, who requested that I put together for him, a custom commissioned compilation album of all the specific tracks from my repertoire that he wanted, in lossless WAV studio quality format - which led to my own idea just published of offering this service to anyone in the world who also wants this service!

In putting together your custom commissioned compilation album, simply let me know:

1) The specific tracks required from my existing repertoire - to aid your selection, all tracks from all of my albums can be previewed in full up to three times, from my Bandcamp Store

2) The audio format required - either lossless WAV (studio quality) or 320kbps MP3 (broadcast quality)

3) If a custom made album cover is also required. 

4) If any new compositions would be required to be commissioned - I will do my best to also create, record and master new pieces for custom made album orders...subject to inspiration from the Muse!

For all your custom produced ancient-themed meditative medicinal musical needs, contact me directly
