Abstract

In 1893-1894 there was a brief revival of ancient Greek music. Gabriel Fauré composed an accompaniment for Henri Weil's and Théodore Reinach's transcription of the 'first' Delphi hymn, and it was performed both in Greece and in Paris in the spring of 1894. During this same timeframe, Camille Saint-Saëns composed the incidental music to Sophocles' Antigone, deriving inspiration from Gevaert's Histoire et théorie de la musique de l'antiquité, employing ancient Greek tetrachords, and adapting the musical fragment then thought to be Pindaric. [p. 165]
