Backgrounders on the Bible through Biblical Archaeology

1437-1439 Christopher Moroney – The Archaeology of Music

Ancient Echoes

Ancient Echoes

As important as music is in the worship of churches today, you have to figure that music was important in biblical times also. There’s the Psalms, of course, but what did they sound like?

About ten years ago we discovered Ancient Echoes, a project by the San Antonio Vocal Arts Ensemble, which attempted to answer the question.

Here again, this week and for the next two weeks, our 3-part interview with SAVAE’s artistic director Christopher Moroney on the research and other aspects of how the project came together, along with a few cuts from the CD. This is a follow-up to our two previous programs on The Language Jesus Spoke.
