Musical Modes: Part 1, Church Modes.

Melanie Spiller is at it again. This is the kind of stuff that makes me happy that Al Gore invented the internet. 😉

This time around, Melanie tells us about the history and evolution of scalar modes, from before they existed and when melodies were all memorized, to 10th-century attempts to use early modes to memorialize chants, on to the major and minor modes and how they changed from their early forms into what we recognize today.
