Lyrics and words by Steve Kilbey



It has long been thought that the music of the ancients had never been notated until now

instrumentalist Gareth Koch and lyricist Steve Kilbey held long and deep consultations

With archaeologists who recently have come relatively close to deciphering musical scripts glyphs and pictograms

Gathered from such cities as Rome, Nineveh, Byzantium , Tyre , Carthage and Ilium the site of ancient Troy

Working with language scholars and local musicians we have attempted to bring these ancient songs alive

We have endeavoured to render these ancient songs in a manner that its comprehensible to the modern listener

These recordings and songs represent the thoughts and sounds of a distant antiquity

Here then is the past

And now

the past is here
