The problem with old music is that there was no way of writing it down.

But I don't see why Church music should not be at least as old as church ritual some of which is very clearly of pagan origin.

Hi there dancer! Who are you? I used to do English Folk Dancing years ago. A lot of the music sounded to me to have Arabic origins.
