Greek Esoteric Music Theory

Greek Esoteric Music Theory by John Byrne

This is a great post I came across using the Tag Surfer on WordPress. John goes over a fascinating bit of music theory and history and explains how ancient Greeks based their music history on mythology. Different notes or keys are associated with various deities, days of the week, zodiac signs, heavenly bodies and other icons/constructs.
