Hurrian Hymn No. 6

Publication

Released on Soundcloud, July 2016.

Description

"Hurrian Hymn No. 6" is the oldest known piece of music, a cult hymn from 3400 years ago. The cuneiform signs in the Hurrian language were discovered in the ancient Syrian city of Ugarit. I started this arrangement a few years ago, but have completed and released it now in dedication to the people of Syria.
