    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    Jesus got into trouble with the Pharisees for His presence at celebrations and His rapport with 'ordinary people'. He speaks of the Pharisees pulling 'long faces' and of piping and dancing in the market place.

    I think He'd like dance music. I'm sure He'd love Praetorius - the music, as well as the man.

    Perhaps he must have bought uninspired gifts from Amazon.

    The song of baby Jesus begins with a wailing in the night . We have heard the melody emergent .

    Never heard the hymn Away In A Manger?

    Is it just me or did anyone else find the pipe man wayyyyy too enthusiastic?

    I remember in young adulthood going on a retreat where a jokey priest cited that line as an example of 'the docetic heresy'.

    But there are lots of 'lullabies of the Virgin' that survive as Middle English lyrics.

    This Aramaic one purports to be the real McCoy. I wouldn't know, but it's very beguiling.
    Sorry if this has been posted already.

    It's well enough and commonly understood that every little child is the baby Jesus nourished by the mother's lullaby .
    And sometimes there comes a night of wondrous peace upon a community . In this night , a baby wails , and a candle is lit as Mother arises to give comfort . We hear the wail in a moment become a song of creation , an emergence of melody simple and pure . To this , we the witness , can hold on to as true .
