International Journal of Inactivism (now supplanted by Decoding SwiftHack)

Ολυμπιακός Ύμνος

Today I take yet another break from talking about climate change inactivism, to listen once more to the Olympic Anthem (Ολυμπιακός Ύμνος).

As it happens, the Music Library of Greece has an interesting essay devoted to the music and musicians behind the 1896 Athens Olympic Games; it also includes sheet music (!) for some of the music pieces, including the Anthem itself, and the Delphic Hymn to Apollo discovered by archaeologists.
