The Silver Lyre

Lorna Govier and Anne Kilmer bring the ancient Sumerian lyre to our ears  with this one-of-a-kind book. Anne Kilmer, professor emerita of University of California Berkeley is a world expert on ancient middle eastern history and culture. Famous for her transcription of the oldest known written music from cuneiform clay tablets, A Hurrian Cult Song, Anne chose three ancient texts about a flood, how to lull a baby to sleep and an exhaltation to drinking beer. Lorna wrote new music to these ancient texts on Anne's replica of the Silver Lyre of Ur. The book contains four pieces in all including a reprinting of A Hurrian Cult Song.
