Assyrian Music

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

The Assyrians held music in honor, and empoyed it for liturgical purposes, as well as those of social and private life. Among the discoveries at Nineveh and Babylon are many of a musical character. Strong bearded men are playing upon harps which are of a triangular form, but of a different structure from most.
