About De Oreganographia

    Philip Neuman, Gayle Stuwe Neuman and William Gavin combine astute musicology, performance practice and instrument crafting to realize this remarkable collection of music from 500 BC to 300 AD. From the most authentic known transcriptions, on period instrument reconstructions, the collection is frequently presented at conferences of The American Musicological Society.

"...enjoy the fresh sound of seldom-heard instruments and melodies performed skillfully in this wonderful recording." -- The Oregonian
