about

Experience a musical journey through a private translation of an Egyptian text from the 13th century BCE: The Year 400 Stela of Ramesses II! Based off the French translation by Monfort, with all original music and original performances by Brian Sovryn himself, Audio of the Ancients is proud to share with you a mysterious text celebrating the reign of a god on Earth: the slayer of Osiris...the god Set, himself! Did Set really rule Egypt in 1720 BCE as the Year 400 Stela suggests? What occasion could Ramesses II be celebrating after 400 years? The stela is incomplete, but the very notion that a god literally walked amongst humanity long ago is tantalizing beyond the wildest romances of history. Let the music carry you across the sweeping sands of ancient history!
