CapriUni Oldest song in the world (32) RE: Oldest song in the world 21 Jun 15

It's clearly not the "oldest song in the world" -- just the oldest surviving fragments of melodic notation (that we have found, so far). Which is still pretty impressive.

Meanwhile, from what I've been able to gather (admittedly, not much -- I'm neither a dedicated scholar of music nor antiquities), the Seikilos Epitaph is the oldest combination of lyrics and musical notation that have been found together.
