    I think you may be talking about shaped notes. It does have a long history not that I can find a lot about it online. It was used as a teaching method along w/ 'hand signs.' The priests could not generally read music but they could follow the hand signs if not the actual shape notes. I don't remember a lot about it any more though I studied it at one point in my life. You can still find music that is printed that way especially if much much older hymnals. It is an interesting topic. Below are a few sites that touch on shape note music.

    It's flute notes, but it sounds the same in piano.
