    Whatever folk music which would have been around in Galilee at the time. Plus antiphonal chants perhaps, mainly from Psalms.

    Might not have been too far off from this, although I'm being speculative of course:

    The question of the OP is a little vague to me. But I'll give it a shot. Considering that mankind has enjoyed music of one type or the other for such a long time, it is likely He would like music as well.

    The question of what type of music is where it gets a little vague to me. In His day he would have probably liked some type of music of that time. As for today, who knows. No doubt many of us would be surprised.
    I am eclectic in my taste in music. Except "Ultra-Modern", Country Music, and Blues."

    Leaving aside the sound of the music Jesus would have heard and preferred, it is to be hoped and expected that the lyrics of any vocal music would be about "love between my brothers and my sisters, all over this land". Plus some warnings and danger on issues of social justice. Bells would have been available to accompany the rhythm of the hammer strokes. Case closed.

    I'm going to sound like such a philistine, but I can't be the only one who saw the video and thought it was going to sound like some stark, lyrical, flute/voice moaning across the desert, like something from Gladiator or Troy.

    I just watched it and it was fascinating.

    Yes! The improvisation on the Louvre aulos was great. Impossible to know how well it reflects actual ancient practice, but it certainly demonstrates the potential of the instrument.
