hinds conception of the music is based on
theory of the hierarchical ordering of tonal material
hind's theory
each tone had a certain weight and order, represents the natural order of the world and corresponding to the idea of a cosmic harmony of the spheres
"The spiritual and intellectual content of the work should center on the search for harmony in all things of life and the world, and on the loneliness of him who finds it. The nonharmony of the events of the time and of his fellow-men will serve to demonstrate the seminal quality of artistic and scientific thoughts and actions; despite comets, wars, ecclesiastical schisms, sickness and change of emperors, a great idea will blossom and gro taller than all other wild and noisy life."
