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.

Lo! How a rose e'er blooming from tender stem hath sprung,
Of Jesse's lineage coming, as seers of old hath sung,
It came a flower bright, amid the cold of winter,
When half-spent was the night.

Isaiah t'was foretold it, the rose I have in mind,
With Mary we behold it, the Virgin Mother kind,
To show God's love aright, she bore to us a Saviour,
When half-spent was the night.

O flower whose fragrance tender with gladness fills the air,
Dispel with glorious speldour the darkness everywhere,
True man, yet very God! From sin and death He saves us,
And lightens every load.
