There have been some attempts to recapture the music of the ancients.
"Some clay tablets from Ancient Mesopotamia indicating a musical notation also exist, and attempts have been made to perform them. Some attempts have also been made for Ancient Egyptian music. This survey must conclude at this point, without a journey farther East, as it becomes more & more removed from the focus of the FAQ. The natural continuation for even music of Egypt or Sumeria is the classical Arabic tradition which formed in medieval times, and this is not treated by the FAQ."
You may find a google search on anapestic beats in biblical psalms to be helpful. Anapestic beats are 2 short beats and a long beat. It is the driving beat you hear in rap and some rock music.
