current mood: nervous

In the last several months, my longtime patron deity has guided me through the first steps of acknowledging two others that I now know had been hovering for my attention but that I had, because of my own issues, ignored. One of these deities is still content with the basic acknowledgment I've given Him but the other is... a bit more insistent and wants more of my attention.

Primarily through tracking down the right kind of music.

It started with me chasing musical instruments around the Internet trying to find the sound I kept hearing in my head and while He at first kept pointing me towards only the lyre, the zither is pinging more strongly - a fact that He accepts because it makes sense considering who my patron is and how She's always communicated with me. That said, He still wants me to have the lyre music in my collection even if I'm simply not ready to go as far as He eventually wants me to (which He knows and is okay with for right now). Unfortunately, my Google-fu is honestly failing me right now, not the least because I've simply never gone searching for this kind of thing so I keep getting things that include techno music and synthesizers.

Basically, I'm looking for ancient Greek music played on the lyre or similar instruments that I can hopefully buy/download without much trouble and I have no idea where to look. I'm even having a hard time finding good quality recordings of some of the hymns, which is extraordinarily frustrating. Beyond that, any advice on finding basic, hopefully older pieces performed on lyres or zithers without any modern embellishments would take a lot of annoyance and frustration off my back.

Again, at my wit's end and any help would be appreciated, as I'm sure my frustration is coming through in this post.

I have this cd and love it:

http://www.amazon.com/Musique-de-la-Grèce-antique/dp/B0011BKR3C/

They play a ton of ancient hymns that they've reconstructed using authentic reproductions of ancient Greek instruments (I'm sure the lyre is included).
