The song of Seikilos is the oldest complete composition in the world.

I really like the message of the lyrics. Something to brake the ice in peoples negativity. I hope in the future more pieces like this will be found.

How come they recovered the musical notes from the text... Or is the music a modern addition?
I wonder, because I knew that musical script was invented by Guido D'Arezzo in renascence Italy.

The notation system is not much different from the one you use today.Basically it follows the same rules, with different symbols.
