The Homeric Hymns are a collection of partial and complete songs from the seventh and sixth centuries BC, written in the style of the Homeric epics. They reflect the earliest stories about the major Greek gods and were recited in public to honor them. Award-winning Four Larks returns to the Getty Villa with a chorus of actors, musicians, and dancers to create original compositions and ancient invocations from these ancient verses, in an ecstatic revival spanning two and half millennia.
