The scale you use is very close to that I use usually in my improvvisations, called from me 'pseudoharmonic' modes, (that are in fact two modes of the Bach scale, one beginning from the 4th, one from the 5th grade)

I guess you refer to the archaich church modes which Bach also used sometimes ? In this case that would be Lydian and Mixolydian mode (starting on f resp. g). But if there's really such a thing as a 'Bach scale' I would like to know more.

I intend the so-called 'Bach-scale' (minor):
i.e.: A - B - C - D - E - F# - G# -A >>G# F# E D C B A

I use this starting from (in the example) the D, for 'free and easy' mood, or (is this the case of similarity) from the E, for a 'tender' mood.
Surely it's been classified centuries ago, I don't know.
The reason for the Castellano's scale reminds me this, is probably the major mode with the minor sixth...
