The same holds true for the influence of the Roman Catholic Church
fathers on the types of sounds that they would allow the composers to
utilize.  Remember: JS Bach was the first composer in modern times to
compose in every conceivable key.  It was forbidden to use all of them
until he boldly went where no composer had been before.

Take it away Captain Kirk.  Warp Factor 4 to G Flat Minor!!!!!

Okay, I can't cite this, but apparently Athenian government authorities
circa 250 BC outlawed certain musical chords for their effect of
stirring up the unhealthy and vulgar passions of young people. You
couldn't write or perform music on stringed instruments using these
chords. It was a matter of public order and safety.
