The music of Greece is as diverse and celebrated as its history. Greek music separates into two parts: Greek traditional music and Byzantine music , with more eastern sounds. Greek musical history extends far back into ancient Greece , since music was a major part of ancient Greek theater. In the 19th century, opera composers, like Nikolaos Mantzaros — , Spyridon Xyndas — and Spyridon Samaras — and symphonists, like Dimitris Lialios and Dionysios Rodotheatos revitalized Greek art music. However, the diverse history of art music in Greece, which extends from the Cretan Renaissance and reaches modern times, exceeds the aims of the present article, which is, in general, limited to the presentation of the musical forms that have become synonymous to 'Greek music' during the last few decades; that is, the 'Greek song' or the 'song in Greek verse'.

That way madness lies. Yet music was ubiquitous in classical Greece, with most of the poetry from around BC to BC — the songs of Homer, Sappho, and others — composed and performed as sung music, sometimes accompanied by dance. Literary texts provide abundant and highly specific details about the notes, scales, effects, and instruments used.
