Hear The Oldest Song In The World

The Oldest Song In The World

This popped up on Reddit.com.  It’s a Hurrian song written in Cuneiform, with musical instructions.  There are three MIDIs representing various scholarly interpretations of that notation.  Sitting here listening to my computer play a song that was written down thousands of years ago in Cuneiform on a clay tablet.  Who could have imagined that?

The site is Amaranth Publishing, and they have a whole page of links to cool and unusual historical music, mostly in MIDI form.
