Welcome to the website for the Lyre Ensemble!

The Lyre Ensemble create ethereal contemporary vocal music from the world’s oldest poetry, accompanied by reconstructed 4,500-year-old instruments. You will never hear anything else like it!

Our debut album ‘The Flood’, the first full-length album of new music in Sumerian and Babylonian for voice and ancient Mesopotamian instruments, is out now! You can order your copy here or on iTunes and Amazon. It is also available from Discovery Records.

The Lyre Ensemble are: Stef Conner (singer and composer), Andy Lowings (instrument-builder, harpist and creator of the Gold Lyre of Ur Project) and Mark Harmer (sound engineer, producer and harpist).  Read more…
