Hear the Bible in a Whole New Way - Through Music
The word “psalm” means, literally, a sacred melody. But what exactly would this music sound like in biblical times? Years in the making, The Davidic Cipher finally unlocks the hidden music of the Psalms, enabling these timeless works to be deciphered and written into traditional musical notation.
Presented in a non-denominational setting, The Davidic Cipher uncovers the underlying links between the words of the Bible, the Hebrew alphabet, the musical instruments of the Psalms, the name of God, and the musical system of our day. Recently seen on the History Channel, this breakthrough work opens up a new understanding and appreciation of the Bible and its music.
* Where did the musical system of King David’s time originate?
* What are the Psalms, who wrote them, and how did they sound?
* What musical function do the Psalm superscriptions and the Hallelujah have?
* How did the Psalmists secretly encode the name of God within the melodies as a form of praise?
* What did the musical instruments of the Psalms look like, how were they tuned, and how were they used to play the music of the Bible?
Scholarly yet accessible to the lay reader, The Davidic Cipher unleashes a wealth of musical and vocal literature that has been hidden within the pages of the Bible for centuries. And it’s required reading for anyone looking to enrich and enhance their understanding of the Bible and the glorious Psalms.
Vom Autor: The Davidic Cipher- Unlocking the Hidden Music of the Psalms is only the start of a much larger work that will hopefully be carried on by other individuals. Some will no doubt disagree on the level of the importance and relevance of the information presented herein. Still, these findings should open new dialogues in various disciplines that will not only enrich our understanding of music, but of this great book we call the Bible.For the musician, the resulting transcriptions of the Psalms provide an untapped resource of new musical literature. These are new musical compositions to be studied and analyzed, arranged and performed. For the theologian, the Davidic Cipher provides a new tool for biblical exegesis and research enabling a more accurate view and format of these works, which in turn will yield better translations and understandings of the texts. Even from a strict literary viewpoint, the application of the Davidic Cipher reveals much of the poetic aspect of the Hebrew lost in tradition and most certainly in translation.
To the average person who reads the Bible, insights into not only the ancient music and instruments, but also into some of the relationships that exist between language, music and the Bible and God can now be seen more clearly.
