The Gilgamesh piece was lovely.
Sorry that I cannot date this or give the language. But it certainly sounds older, and it is a piece written in an alternative to the western 12 note musical scale. Many eastern cultures used different note scales, while the west settled on a 12 note scale (A through G plus sharps and flats).


And apologies as this is a modern piece, written last century by the Lebanese composer Toufic Succar. I only share it because it played next on the YouTube playlist but I found it quite beautiful

Four versions of the same song, a French renaissance classic, Le Chant des oiseaux (the Bird Song) by Clément Janequin, a piece that is often done in music class in French middle school (fun memories!):

at a local parisian church choir

more playful interpretation by a local troupe

interesting solo performance by a singer who recorded all 4 tracks

A professional recording
