It just came to me. Aeolian is the sixth, which would make it a minor. I
confusing it with Ionian which is the first. Its been afew
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?
white bear lake,
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!
