    The Second Delphic Hymn To Apollo: Dated BC. One of the earliest manuscripts of music that we can still play and we know who composed it. It's made up of 10 songs that flow together into one composition. What's cool to me is the Greek musical notation of the time.

    A single sheet containing a transcription by Benjamin Britten of the first Delphic Hymn, the Greek melody from which Britten drew for his own Hymn to Apollo in the first act of Death in Venice (). The manuscript shows by some of Britten's markings the sections of the Greek melody he had decided to adapt for his own purposes.

    History. Both Delphic Hymns were addressed to Apollo, and were found inscribed on stone fragments from the south outer wall of the Athenian treasury at Delphi in by a French archaeologist (Weil ; Reinach ). Reconstruction of the fragments was facilitated by the fact that the first hymn uses vocal notation, and the second employs instrumental notation (Pöhlmann and West , 70).

    FYI there is a recording available called "Ancient Greek Music" by the Atrium Musicae de Madrid, released in on Harmonia Mundi, that contains interpretations on reconstructed instruments of pretty much all the ancient Greek and Roman musical output that has survived to the present, including the first Delphic Hymn to Apollo.

    Our hymn to Apollo has a second part, and this part of Apollo's story is centered on the Temple at Delphi. Delphi, a very famous place in antiquity has a long and deep connection with Apollo. You'll remember the previous lecture, we were trying to make sense out of this rupture in .

    The First Hymn uses vocal notation, while the Second Hymn uses instrumental notation. Unfortunately, both songs are incomplete, but musicologists have done their best to piece together the fragments. Several modern recordings of both hymns exist.
