What role did music play in ancient rituals, and what impact might these sounds have made upon worshippers? Although the ephemeral sounds of ancient music are impossible to recover, surviving musical instruments and representations of musical performances preserve traces of the importance music held within ancient and premodern rituals. Join Carolyn M. Laferrière, Postdoctoral Associate at Archaia: Yale Program for the Study of Ancient and Premodern Cultures and Societies, and curator of Sights and Sounds of Ancient Ritual, for a discussion of music, the divine, and ritual performance. Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Sights and Sounds of Ancient Ritual.
