Therefore, musical scientists, musicians and archeologists try to find out the probable sounds of ancient instruments experimentally, by reconstructing the finds as close to the original as possible.
In the absence of a system of musical notation for the period in question, the reconstruction and study of ancient musical expression was based on comparative studies of iconography, textual analysis, social studies and customs, also drawing from paleorganology, ethnomusicology, archeology and historiography.
The richness of the iconographic documentation, the abundance of tested theories and numerous literary connections facilitated the study and reproduction of a wide range of antique musical instruments, helping to determine, among other points of interest, their melodic and harmonic possibilities and acoustic quality.
In eadem sum sententia atque te, Bijlee: Mihi quoque hoc placet opus, quod inscribitur “Catulli carmina. Ludi scaenici ‚Rumoresque senum severiorum omnes unius aestimemus assis.‘” Musica non est vera Romana, sed opus est amatorium sive ἐρωτικόν, cuius praelusio* in disputatione scripta est et dialogo. Sequuntur actus tres**, quibus Catulli ipsius continentur carmina. Quid plura? Legite, audite*** modo ipsi!Bijlee scripsit / wrote:Here's my favorite song from Carl Orff's Catulli Carmina
