Thumbs up Music of the Bible and the Davidic Cipher

Well, well, it looks like someone has attempted to interpret the Davidic Cipher. If you don't know what that is, it's a series of musical notations for the Psalms, included in ancient manuscripts of that respective volume, and for which the meaning has mostly been forgotten. I'm not sure how accurate it is, but I'm fascinated by the subject, to say the least. The website by the scholar who has researched this is here: The Music of the Bible and the Psalms - MusicoftheBible.com

And here is an example of one of those songs interpreted:

...Stunningly beautiful, but not surprisingly. I can imagine that the originals may have very well sounded like this.

This is really cool. It sounds a lot like klezmer music, which isn't surprising since that musical tradition developed out of Jewish musical theory used for worship.
I believe, O Lord, and I confess, that You are truly the Christ, the Son of the Living God, who came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the chief...
~ Ryan Isaac

Advancing from false doctrine to true faith,
illumined with the light of knowledge,
let us clap our hands and offer grateful praise to God in song!
With due honor let us venerate the holy icons of Christ,
of the all-pure Virgin, and of all the saints,
depicted on walls or panels or sacred vessels,
rejecting the godless teaching of the heretics!
For as Saint Basil says:
“The honor shown to the image passes to its prototype.”
By the prayers of Your pure Mother and of all the saints,
we beseech You, O Christ our God, to grant us great mercy!
that He may be bountiful and save our souls!

- Stikhera from the Sunday of the Triumph of Orthodoxy
