Information from owned CD.
There is no Emmuty label number on the CD, VE 003 is the catalogue number.
In 364 BC. Rome was afflicted by a terrible pestilence. In order to appease the anger of the Gods, LVDI SCÆNICI were created which featured "Ludiones" (Etruscan dancers and actors) who "dancing to the sound of tibia without singing themselves and without miming the meaning of the sound, moved, not without grace, in Etruscan manner" (Livy VII, 2)
Some musical instruments of that period have survived and there is an abundance of figurative illustrations. This material together with description by Latin authors has enabled us (Lvdi Scænici) to reconstruct these instruments and therefore allow us to here (sic!) their sounds and combinations. We are able to reproduce a plausible choreography thanks to the large number of image of dance. (from CD leaflet).
