Hurrian Hymn to Nikkal No.6 is the oldest surviving substantially complete work of notated music in the world that dates back to 1400 B.C.. Nikkal is a Ugaritic goddess of orchards, whose name means "Great Lady and Fruitful". Someone jokingly commented “Only 1400 B.C. kids will remember this” under a youtube video of the hymn, whereas it inadvertently invoked connotations of the transcendence of mankind's spiritual experience.

《胡里安獻給果園之神Nikkal的頌歌》(又稱《胡里安頌歌之6》 )可追溯到公元前1400年,是至今發現最古老的歌曲,亦是一份接近完整的樂譜。 Nikkal是烏加里特人信奉的果園女神,她的名字帶豐收的意思。有人在Youtube其中一條頌歌影片留言笑說:「只有公元前1400年的孩子會記得這首歌」,卻不期然地使人聯想到人類精神經驗的超越性。

In the streets, I witnessed the common faith of mankind amidst absurdity. Therefore, I built a statue for its fall, and performed primitive rituals today carrying a heart that is akin to worshippers of the ancient times.

我在街上看到人類在荒謬中的共同信仰,於是我為神像的倒下造神像,在今天以古代祟拜者的心進行原始宗教儀式。
