Why this is a
Masterpiece

This script referring to “Gur” song composed by yan-eg, dan-eg and rol-eg, is one of the most remarkable creations of the 18th and 19th centuries witnessing the development of the musical melody symbolic system among the ancient Mongols. It is considered authored by the “True believer Nomun Khan Luvsannorovsharav” from Noyonkhan Province, and the reincarnated monks succeeding him.

History of the Object
The scripts refers to the musical melody symbolic system consisting of: - Scripts to be read by words and melody – “dan-eg” - Scripts to be sung with the throat – “yan-eg” - Scripts to be chanted together with a musical instrument – “rol-eg” Thus, the record of the song "Gur" is a system combining three keys to a song content: dan-eg, yan-eg and rol-eg. The script of the “Gur” song makes mention of praying and chanting, the melody dan-eg is widely applied to the ancient oriental religious music. But it also refers to yan-eg to be sung with the voice and rol-eg to be played on a ten-cord zither witnessing the talent of Mongols in performing the music and visualizing of the song "Gur". The European musical system consists of five musical notes, but the oriental musical system, especially of Mongols, has no limitation in terms of space.
