MAG (inactive) Help: 'The Devil's Music' (32) RE: Help: 'The Devil's Music' 22 Aug 00

GUEST Leeneia's right; I vaguely remember something from music theory somewhere that this interval was taboo in medieval church music because its supposed dissonance was Satanic.

I don't know if we are being helpful to the original poster: was it a questions about the interval, or about bowed stringed instruments, or music for same, or what?

As a good reference librarian, I need more information! (But only because searching with what we had, I couldn't come with anything.)
