    This is fascinating. For me personally, as I am Greek and naturally interested, but also as a part of humanity's heritage. To rediscover music that was enjoyed over 2000 years ago is an incredible contribution to culture and enables us to connect with our ancestors on a higher level than ever before. Thank you for your work!!

    I'm at a loss of words to describe how happy it makes me feel to think that we now are able to do this. Honnestly this is so amazing! I feel like we all owe a thank you to those who worked on restoring this lost knowledge because dang :O I hope one day, when I'll be historian too, I'll be able to do something as admirable and great as this ^_^

    Circular breathing requires you to puff out your cheeks and contort your lips. The Ancient Hellenic texts claim that the Aulos was invented by Athena who immediately threw it away after she saw how it contorted her face when she played. This implies that the Ancient Greeks had already invented the technique for circular breathing by the time the Aulos was invented. Absolutely fascinating stuff.

    Callum Armstrong's improvised dual-piping is astonishingly beautiful and powerful, and reminds me of some of my favourite pieces of music. Reminiscent of several pieces of Zelda music in particular, such as the Dark World them and Dancing Dragon Dungeon.

    It also sounds quite like western middle-age music. This music might not have disappeared, but might have evolved centeries after centuries into something else, and somewhere else.

    This music is a bit bizarre compared to more contemporary songs, yet it sounds familiar somehow. I like it!

    This music has a kind of hallucinating, mesmerising quality to it.

    Wow!! Absolutely incredible. I can’t imagine the painstaking research required to bring this project into public view. I’m in awe of your work to every person playing an ancient instrument, to those trying to sing a dead language. Absolutely breathtaking to hear it all

    Crazy how ancient instruments have a way of striking chords deep inside our human consciousness, as though our species has listened to these sounds for so long that we remember them without having ever heard them before. It speaks to our millenia-old collective human memory, somehow.

    The song was truly amazing, I am very curious about the two thousand years old lyrics, somehow they looked very “metal” to me lol. Very powerful atmosphere in the song. The improvised double pipe demonstration was also very interesting.

    Wow! I’m a specialist in performance practice of the Baroque era (baroque Violin and Viola) and this has the be the most fascinating thing I’ve ever seen! Congratulations on your research and performance, I hope we see and hear more of this in the future.
