Musical uses[fontem recensere]

Interesting idea, evidently a subset of the practice of getting metamessages from texts. Perhaps somebody would like to write an article on the larger topic. The texts can even be musical. A famous such example is a coronation fanfare by Josquin des Pres. It's melody that, when spelled out in syllables, is: ut mi ut re re sol mi. Extract the vowels and you have: U I U E E O I. Which of course implies VIVE (l)E (r)OI, long live the king. Then there are the pieces whose themes are the notes BACH (in German, B = B-flat and H = B-natural) and other such words (e.g., http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Variations_on_the_name_%22Abegg%22). A related issue is musical numerology, like the earthquake in the St. Matthew Passion, which (in just the cellos? or where? I forget) has sixty-eight notes, reminding us that the event was foretold in Psalm 68 (Psalm 68:8, to be exact). The larger topic is a really complicated one!

Ahem...BACH thema...--Ioshus, minutes after last post.
Most excellent! Now how about ABEGG and other such themes? IacobusAmor 18:55, 24 Septembris 2006 (UTC)
Certainly a broader page on this is scribenda. And probably an even broader page on Cryptologia. There are so many music theory articles I should do beforehand though. Just so there won't be a million red links on subsequent articles.--Ioshus (disp) 19:32, 24 Septembris 2006 (UTC)
Bene habet! And down with red links! IacobusAmor 00:53, 25 Septembris 2006 (UTC)
