More links on music perception and ancient music

This entry is basically a summary of news items sent to me over the past few days.

From the New York Times, we have the article "To Tug Hearts, Music First Must Tickle the Neurons" and the article "What Makes Music Expressive?"

From the BBC, we have the article (with the legacy recording) "Recreating the sound of Tutankhamun's trumpets" (one of which was recently stolen and returned).

Finally, from Scientific Blogging (Science 2.0) we have the article "Lost Sounds Orchestra: Ancient Musical Instruments Brought Back To Life" (a download page may be found on ASTRA Project on the Grid).
