GREAT WORKS DECONSTRUCTED BY A MASTER!
C S Lewis famously wrote that what we regard as myth here is often truth elsewhere; and one way of keepingthose truths alive and visible is to encode them in music.
Max Heindel here explores the notion of the Great Work and the seeking after Truth through music, illustrating the mythic significance of figures and themes appearing in Faust, Parsifal, The Ring of the Niebelung, Tannhauser and Lohengrin.
Heindel fits such symbols as Ygdrassil (the world ash), Muspel (beloved of David Lindsay), Lucifer, Venus and Nothung into a liberating Rosicrucian system of thought.
For the Seeker and the Opera lover alike.
At our smaller-than-small independent publishing house we have a mission to rekindle physical books.
We are also dedicated to dragging the truth from the shadows, putting it centre-stage and shining a spotlight on it.
We are the exclusive publishers of the works of William Comyns Beaumont, renowned historian, and uncle of novelist Daphne Du Maurier.
