Ancient Egyptian Music: Several examples of ancient Egyptian instruments survive and there is some proof that notation may have been used in later periods, but the evidence is very thin on the ground. Many tomb scenes show instruments being played and it appears that music played an important part in Egyptian life, as it does in most cultures, past and present.

EGYPTIAN SIGNATURES:

Below are some of the Ancient Egyptian quotes that are used on various pages of Ancientnile. Most e-mail programmes have signature tabs so you can save your message for automatic use.



Men looked with wonder and questioning, and having observed Amun's masterpiece, wanted to create things for themselves


The end of becoming is the beginning of destruction. The end of destruction is the beginning of becoming


The differences in character of the pharaohs are not determined by the nature of their souls, for all kingly souls are godlike, but by the gods themselves.


The celestial powers known by thought alone, are called the gods, and they preside over the world


When the creator, Amun, made the second god which is the cosmos he was pleased. His creation was beautiful and wholly filled with goodness, and he loved it like his child


The lawgivers introduced the mighty god of oaths as founder of pledges and good faith, and so filled the world with justice


The cosmos is the son of Amun. Man is the son of the cosmos. And therefore the grandson of Amun


To simply love Amun in thought with singleness of heart and to follow the goodness of his will


Amun is first, the cosmos is second and man is third


Egypt is an image of the heavens, and the whole cosmos dwells in this its sanctuary
