Dorian - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (928 words)
Dorian invasion (more often called the Dorian migration in modern texts) was, until fairly recently, widely considered the cause of the downfall of the Mycenaeans, based on the claims of the Dorians themselves in the time of Classical Greece.
Their leaders were mythologized as the Heracleidae, the sons of the legendary hero Heracles, and the Dorian incursion into Greece in the distant past was justified in the mythic theme of the "Return of the Heracleidae".
Tsakonian Greek, a descendant of Doric Greek and source of great interest to linguists, is extraordinarily still spoken in some regions of the Southern Argolid coast of the Peloponnese, on the coast of the modern prefecture of Arcadia.
Dorian mode - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (555 words)
Confusingly, the Greek Dorian mode is the same as the medieval and modern Phrygian mode.
Thus, in medieval and modern music, the Dorian mode is a diatonic scale or musical mode which corresponds to the white keys of the piano from "D" to "D".
The Dorian mode is symmetric, meaning that the pattern of tones and semitones (T-s-T-T-T-s-T) is the same ascending or descending.
