What Kind of Music Did Abraham Listen To?

by Steve Ray on April 6, 2021

UrMusic.jpgOne of our DVDs in the Footprints of God series is entitled “Abraham, Father of Faith & Works.” We filmed the first chapter it in Iraq — in Ur of Chaldees — which is the home of Abraham, just south of Baghdad (Gen 11:28-31).

Thanks to the Biblical Archaeology Society to which I subscribe, we can now listen to music that Abraham listened to. We included this music in our DVD.

Click here to listen to The Music of Ur, a musical duet featuring a lyre and double pipes such as those found at the ancient city of Ur. Click here to learn more about these instruments and the music from that time period.

Enjoy! And you can hear this kind of music on our Footprints of God DVD. We follow Abraham from Iraq (yeah, we really went there to film :-) to Turkey, to Israel and the Palestinian Territories.

Hi Steve, I greatly enjoy your Footprints of God series and I use them in my RCIA library for folks to check out and watch at home. Do you have any idea of when the video on Abraham will be available? Thanks for all the work you do for the kingdom! God bless, Chris

This gives a good representation of the sound but I wish it had more of a melody.

And I bet Abraham’s father told him: “Turn that down!”
