Exploring Music
with Bill McGlaughlin
Musical Cryptograms: Shhh  It's a Secret - Musicians have long been told that their minds are similar to those of mathematicians. This week we'll discover and decipher codes, messages and meanings that have been hidden within pieces of classical music over the centuries. Some of these messages were encoded for the fun of the puzzle, while others held deep painful meanings.
