Re: hostas with musical names - was aeolian

Ray wrote:
It just came to me. Aeolian is the sixth, which would make it a minor. I was
confusing it with Ionian which is the first. Its been  afew years!!


ahhhh, that would account for the mournful, or haunting type sound of the aeolian harp in the castle chimney of that book i read!
 does anyone know if it's possible to buy a smaller version of these things....meaning something within MY price range?  (the ones available through   http://www.harpmaker.net/windharp.htm  for $375 and $425 are NOT within mine)
ray,  how do you know about the 7 modes?  i've only had 2 years of piano lessons....but if i had continued on, is this something i would have learned about?  are they the same as the key a song is written in?
hmmm, to make this hosta related, how many hosta names are related to music?  (summer music, elvis lives, etc). what would a hosta that's named for a minor key (mode?) have to look like?  somber? haunting? soulful?

p.s.  did you know that at one time, songs in  minor keys weren't allowed in church music?  i'm glad that's not the case anymore!
