As religion and politics conflated to a toxic mix in the medieval period, Polyhymnia’s survival lay in the music of authority- both religious and secular, and we are still dealing with much of this unfortunate consolidation, with the distinctions between "Serious" and "Popular" music being yet another example of the Muses’; battles.
For Polyhymnia, she has her unyielding acolytes in academic music (the unlistenable crap generated in universities), the necrophilic classical music industry, and "Serious" music (music that can be formally identical to some variants of popular music, but features flashy academic credentials and/or fans that are especially well heeled).
Polyhymnia sits and sips her cup of distilled ambrosia and considers its flavour.
