Pax RomanaPeaceful music from the age of RomeThe Romans loved music and used it in both peace and at war. This unique programme recreates the sounds that might have been heard in a Roman villa in fifth- or sixth-century Europe, using a wide variety of instruments which were known at the time. A peaceful album, purely instrumental, with lots of variety and colour.1 Lugete, o cupidines Hammered dulcimer2 Insomnia curus Lyre3 Ecce ascendimus Harp4 Otium tibi molestum est Gittern5 Spring Song Psalterium6 Alma Venus Hammered dulcimer7 Somnus Scipionis Lyre8 Aurora lucis Harp9 Pipe Dance Pipe & drum 10 Tristis animi levare cures Gittern11 Walls of Stone Hammered dulcimer12 Pax Romana Harp13 Flower Song Harp14 Waves Harp15 Temple Hymn PsalteriumJon BanksCCL CDG1149Cover image: Doves drinking from a dish from the tomb of the Volurifii on the Via Appia (mosaic), Roman (1st century AD), Musée Condé, Chantilly, France, Giraudon/Bridgeman Art LibraryP & C 2006 Classical Communications LtdMade in Great BritainInside book:Pax RomanaPeaceful music from the age of RomeDescende caelo et dic age tibiaregina longum Calliope melos,seu voce nunc mavis acutaseu fidibus citharaque Phoebi.Auditis, An me ludit amabilisinsania?

Or does some strange dream deceive me?I think I hear her as I stratthrough hallowed groves, wherepleasant waters steal, and breezes stir.In the days of my youth, on trackless Vultur,beyond the borders of my old nurse Apulia,when I was tired with play and overcomewith sleep,the doves of legends covered me o'er withfreshly fallen leaves, and I was a marvel to all whodwell in lofty Acherontia's nest and Bantia'sglades, and the fertile fields of Forentum in the dale:they saw how safe I slept, hidden from bears and blacksnakes! And how I was covered with a blanket of sacredbay and gathered myrtle! And how fearless a child was I,watched over by the gods!
