AT an earlier moment I showed you the sounds of silence as they pertain to the cymatics of sacred spaces, but in reality, the kings and priests of the kingdom knew how to lob a sound grenade into a cathedral with the mighty pipe organ. Have you ever sat and listened to one of those bad boys? They were harmony bombs. Each song would have been tuned and played at the sacred healing tone of 528 Hertz. Not the 440 Hertz garbage which they play in music nowadays. Divided by 12 leaves us with 36.666.
Quick post mud flood history lesson. In 1885, the Music Commission of the Italian Government declared that all instruments and orchestras should use a tuning fork that vibrated at 440 Hertz rather than the standard of 435 Hertz which proceeded it. In 1917, the American Federation of Musicians followed suit, with an even heftier push for 440 Hertz in the 1940s. By 1953, a worldwide standard was agreed upon and signed. From that moment on, 440 Hertz not only became the definitive guideline for how the middle “A” on the piano was tuned, but the frequency for all instruments on the chromatic scale.
In my latest update to “Kings and Priests of the Millennial Kingdom,” I take a closer look at pipe organs as well as chimneys and fireplaces and we will ask ourselves what these were originally intended for. Enjoy.
