Here’s a 30-second video footage of Book Seven (?) of the Iliad sung in Greek Cypriot dialect along with music :) The music sounds an awful lot like the one we sing the hymns with in Greek Orthodox churches, so I guess that the church was strongly inspired by ancient Greek music too?

Thank you for your input! And I agree with what you said about the addition of music bringing life into the text! I think I read somewhere (can’t remember the source) that the Homeric epics were probably sung aloud in ancient Greece as well, instead of spoken aloud. There’s also Erotokritos, a medieval Cretan epic, that’s also widely sung in traditional Cretan tunes and that has even been adapted into opera by Greek composer Yannis Makropoulos. Post

Thus breathes life to the text!! I believe that Byzantine music has been greatly shaped by the ancient one, since the culture is a continuation and those melodies didn’t come out of nowhere. In the first days of Christianity people were using old temples (or parts of them, sadly) as Christian churches so I don’t see why they wouldn’t have adapted their music the same way. Post
