Pappas Post: Unique Collection of Recorded Greek Folk Music Digitized. “A unique collection of recorded Greek folk music has been digitized and made available to the public by Harvard University’s Milman Parry Collection of Oral Literature. The collection, named after Trinity College Classics Professor James A. Notopoulos, is particularly notable for its wealth of songs that use centuries-old musical and poetic techniques to narrate recent occurrences such as the Italian invasion, Nazi occupation and other events from World War II.”
