    'A well-illustrated and comprehensive introduction to ancient music from Homeric times to the emperor Hadrian ... we recommend it highly as a book that is both scholarly and approachable, and of value to everyone with an interest in the subject, scholars, students and the general reader.' - Classical Association News 'John Landels has produced a lively and illuminating survey of what we know ... his book can be recommended to any musical person wishing to imagine for himself the sound, the atmosphere and the meaning of ancient song and dance.' - Roger Scruton, The Times
