Just imagine Renaissance. Italy. You see frescoes, sculptures, warmth, church bells all around and somewhere you hear soothing melody of the lyre. It's hard not to fall in love with these sounds, isn't it?
The melody of the lyre fascinated not only ordinary people, but also the nobility. The Duke of Milan took much delight in the sound of the lyra and Leonardo brought him as a gift a silver lyra shaped like a horse’s skull, with a very resonant sound, which he had made with his own hands. Nowadays there is not any mention of this instrument made by Leonardo da Vinci in his documents.
