Music of antiquity has been found to be of interest only to the historians and musicologists who make their living by dissecting the labyrinth of ancient word references and pictures. Due to it's age, the music of the Bible has been a part of this maze. Though there have possibly been more commentaries written upon the text of Biblical wit than on any other book, few have enlightened their readers With a discussion of the specific musical practices of the ancient Hebrews and early Christians. This parsimony of the biblical. schol.ar over his primary concerns in theology has left a scanty inheritance for the church musician interested in the music of the Bible. The realization of this led to the present investigator's interest in pursuing the subject of this study.
