Through a cool mix of technology and research, Cappella Romana, a vocal group hailing from Portland, Oregon, has recently recorded an album of medieval Eastern Roman Empire sacred music that has been manipulated to sound like it would have sounded inside Hagia Sophia, pre-Ottoman conquest.

YouTube playlist of Lost Voices of Hagia Sophia:  https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=OLAK5uy_k98CAyJvDBJ0yBJQcDVyscJ1lNF66G92s

Short (> 5 minutes) audio story from NPR about how it was done:  https://www.npr.org/2020/02/22/808404928/listen-the-sound-of-the-hagia-sophia-more-than-500-years-ago

I got nothing but WOW, y'all.
"If having a soul means being able to feel love, loyalty, and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans."

James Herriot (James Alfred "Alfie" Wight), when a human client asked him if animals have souls.  (I don't remember in which book the story originally appeared.)


Wow, indeed!   This is awesome; thanks for sharing.
From ghoulies and ghosties and long-leggity beasties and things that go bump in the night...good Lord deliver us!
