What is the oldest Jewish music written on the paper? What are the names of ancient Jewish notes? Are them equal to contemporary?

Maybe music is hidden between the lines in the ancient fundamental works?

I don't know if this helps. But I was told that the tune for Birchas Cohanim we use nowadays goes all the way back to what was used in the times of the Bais Hamikdash.

The following website may be of interest. I'm no historian, I don't really know how emesdik his claims are, or if there's any concrete way of validating them.

Thank you. All thoughts on this subject are useful for me. I think cantillation demands special studying. And stories about ancient instruments are very interesting.

the gemarah(Nedarim 37b and Megillah 3a) explain a pasuk in Nechemiah(8:8) which talks about the Jewish leaders reteaching the nation Torah, that the words ויבינו במקרא are reffering to the cantallation notes - which implies that A) these musical notes existed in the times of Nechemiah(year 3426[347b.c.e])(the gemara then goes on to explain that the notes were actually a mesorah(seemingly the intention to a mesorah from har sinai) which was forgotten and that reinstated)
B) at the very least, we see that the certainly in the times of the gemarah(year 4000[300 c.e.]) these cantallation notes already existed
