Rabbi Nachman of Breslov writes that the origin of music is the earth. Each blade of grass, he writes, plays a particular note, and somehow, the shepherd, who dwells in the fields as his sheep graze, subconsciously absorbs these notes and plays a unique tune, based on the notes of the grass of the area that he inhabits at any particular time.
Since discovering this idea, I “noted” the relationship between many words relating to plants and music. Some examples:
GaN = garden; niGuN = melody
ZeMuRah = vine; ZeMiRah = pruning, song
ShaRon = lush pasture (Metzudath Tziyon, Isaiah 35:2); ShiR = song
