Delphic Paean by Athenaios Athenaiou

Here is a draft of some performing materials I am developing with Armand D’Angour. This is an experiment – we would welcome feedback from singers and academics. Our idea is to move away from a single solution, a single recording, a single edition. Instead of fixing and controlling, we want to make it easy for others to adapt these performing materials to suit themselves.

Updates and alternative versions will appear from time to time under each heading below. Right-click (or ctrl-click) to download the editable file formats.
