I just tried the link. You need to be subscribed to be able to see anything interesting.

ETA: Dammit, I hate it when a post appears at the top of the page. I was referring to TonyK's link to Crockfords.

Thanks - found his name in a few seconds from the link, but the £35 subscription to get the details is a bit steep. I'll ask around my friends for a favour. Or possibly a library.

Your local Anglican parish priest might have a copy, or know someone who does. There are no data protection issues in letting someone know what's in Crockford. If you don't already know what your Anglican parish is, and you are based in England, then A church near you will give you the information you want if you enter your post code.

Has anyone ever encountered this symbol, more hexagrammatic than I can achieve here, as a precursor to the magen David, with alleged roots in Canaanite culture, symbolizing a sexual encounter?

Martin-

Not that specific one. *But*, AIUI, in Hindu yantras, downward triangle is feminine and upward is masculine (Wikipedia). Joining the two represents joining the two energies.

When I first came across that and considered the Star of David, I started wondering about connections. I don't know what it means, if it means anything.

You might also check out the Wikipedia articles on "Hexagrams", "Star of David", and "Sacred Geometry".

Good luck!

It's possible that your public library authority may have an online subscription, in which case if you're a library member you may be able to get access using your membership. (A quick look indicates that my local library authority don't offer Crockford's, but there are quite a lot of reference works that I can log in to from home, plus some more accessible only in libraries).

All good advice - thank you. Luckily, I found one little google reference that let me make the connection via another person, and we are back in touch. A happy day.

I’ve been wondering (for no particular reason) if there is a group name for the percussion instruments that are made up of a row of wooden or metal bars that are struck by a hammer -- other than referring to them as "xylophony-marimba-y, type thingies." Percussionists must have some name for them, I would think.

Perhaps Percussion Idiophone?

That's still rather broad, since it includes triangles, wood blocks, etc. Maybe no such term exists.

I think we used to call them pitched percussion when using them at school for Carl Orff method. That would include chime bars which are not arranged like a keyboard, but come separately, and the xylophones, glockenspiels and so one with a single range of notes, with different key signatures achieved by changing the bars, rather than having what would be the black notes as a separate range.
