The Flood: New music with Ancient Words

‘The Flood’, the debut album by the Lyre Ensemble, is now available to buy on CD, complete with full translations, and ships anywhere in the world.  The music is also available to download on amazon.

The Flood is the first full-length album of cutting-edge new music in ancient Babylonian and Sumerian languages. Accompanied by the reconstructed 4500-year-old Gold Lyre of Ur, Stef’s sung Mesopotamian poetry oozes, swoops, lurches and wails its way from gentle incantations for baby quietening and poems in praise of mothers to the snarling curses of dying monsters and deathly threats of an enraged Goddess!
