A ‘live’ performance of “The Golden Age of Pericles” – track 1, from my 2015 album, “The Ancient Greek Tortoise Shell Lyre”. Here is a link to the album on Spotify:

As well as Spotify, the album is also available from iTunes, Apple Music & Amazon.

This live performance features the deeper, richer timbre of my larger chelys (tortoise shell form) lyre, which instead of having an actual tortoise shell as the resonator, which was used in the album, has a resonator fashioned in the form of a tortoise shell, made from wood. The deeper resonance is more suitable for providing a fascinating accompaniment to vocal lines; which I experiment with in the live rendition of the melody.

The lyre featured in this video, was my Lutherios ‘Lyre of Thamyris’:

Lyre of Thamyris (11 strings) – ancient Greek lyre

The ‘Ode Lyre Strings’ strings featured in this video are also available from Luthieros. Made of sugar cane, they have both the warmth of timbre & crispness of attack of gut, but with both the durability & stability of tuning of regular nylon.
