Need help I.D.'ing a title and story...

I'm looking for the title and story about the group of musicians that were told they could conquer a fortress with their music. One by one they played their instruments, but to no avail. However, when they played all together, they were able to conquer the fortress... or sumthin' like that...

The problem is, I can't remember all the details and I sure can't remember the title or where it came from.

It may be biblical or Greek...

Can anyone here help me?

No, it's not Jericho.

I remember the musicians attempting one by one to play their instruments solo first.

It seems to my diminishing memory, that the walls of Jericho were besieged, but would not fall, until the Ram's horn was blown.

Thanks for giving it a go!

I hear this story as a kid. It's stuck with me ever since.

I still haven't found the source.
