Is it a word which applies to music?

We routinely see "archaic" applied to words in a dictionary. Music seems to have more staying power.

Not everybody feels the same about a particular piece, but I, for one, am glad that sound recording has made it possible to listen to performances made today of old works in addition to performances made before I was born.

"Let it Be" (The Beatles)



I recently read that the word "lox" is among the most long-used words, changing only in spelling as it crossed from its roots into several European languages and still carries on with the same "salmon" meaning it had at the beginning.

That is anti-archaic!
