The Music of the Romans - A Sound Journey into the Past
The music of the Romans was closely connected with their everyday life and their festivals. But unlike today, there were no concrete notations or records of musical pieces back then. Nevertheless, a few works have survived to this day and give us an insight into the musical world of the Romans. One of the most famous works is the "Carmen Saeculare" by the poet Horace, written on the occasion of the Saecular celebration in 17 BC. It is a chant that was performed by a group of singers and instrumentalists. However, not only singing but also instrumental music was important to the Romans. For example, there was the tibiae game, which involved playing on double flutes. Learn more about the ancient world of music and discover the fascinating sounds of the Romans.

For example, Vitruvius' "De architectura", a work on architecture, or Julius Caesar's "Commentarii de Bello Gallico", a description of his war experiences.
