From the Author:

The Davidic Cipher-Unlocking the Hidden Music of the Psalms is only the start of a much larger work that will hopefully be carried on by other individuals. Some will no doubt disagree on the level of the importance and relevance of the information presented herein. Still, these findings should open new dialogues in various disciplines that will not only enrich our understanding of music, but of this great book we call the Bible.

For the musician, the resulting transcriptions of the Psalms provide an untapped resource of new musical literature. These are new musical compositions to be studied and analyzed, arranged and performed. For the theologian, the Davidic Cipher provides a new tool for biblical exegesis and research enabling a more accurate view and format of these works, which in turn will yield better translations and understandings of the texts. Even from a strict literary viewpoint, the application of the Davidic Cipher reveals much of the poetic aspect of the Hebrew lost in tradition and most certainly in translation.

To the average person who reads the Bible, insights into not only the ancient music and instruments, but also into some of the relationships that exist between language, music and the Bible and God can now be seen more clearly.
