The Hermetic Library Anthology Album - Magick, Music and Ritual 2

by The Hermetic Library

We are stars fallen down to earth Kissed-cold with darkness, burning. We reckon out each moment from our birth. Finding new ways to shine. Band together, earthly ones! Blend your brightness whole, and sing! Reclaim the wings of angels, strong, Bring forth now, the change! (We are the ones) We seed the earth, With hallowed light. The core burns through This longest night. There is no apocalypse to come, No messiah leads our journey There is now this chance to turn the wheel, For sleeping ones to rise! Band together, earthly ones! Blend your brightness whole, and sing! Reclaim the wings of angels, strong, Bring forth now, the change! (We are the ones) We seed the earth, With hallowed light. The core burns through This longest night. (We are these sleepers, waking from long night. We are anointed ones who claim this sun Dawn now. Shine now. Burn brightly. Live.)
And He Looked to the Moon And they heard the Love Song Then they looked in the Tomb and then Mary was gone MA Re Ah And they searched the High Seas And the shore lands of Troy but She was on the Trap-Ease just to find her Joy they had tried to destroy like a child's Toy and they found her one Morning the brave MAdmoiselle washing her hair in a wishing-well she was a bomb-shell it was clear as a Bell it was a MAgicK Spell And they gathered around her with torches of fire for filling their hearts with such Pure Desire they would light the Pyre and burn it higher and higher and higher And they told her she's make such a beautiful bride but don't let them see you now hide ..hide hide your Pride cause you'll be hiding inside And so she Transformed to escape persecution and return in the Time of her ReV )0( Lution it was the Rites of Eleusis the Lord of Force and Fire had risen And on his White Horse with Wings on his Head he said, "Do what thou wilt, because God is dead, you can love me instead, and spend all day in bed." Ma Re Ah And they Looked to the Sky As the Stars all fell Down. All of the Dust of the Heavenly Crown Heavenly Krown..HEAvenly KA-Ra-On


The Hermetic Library at Hermetic.com has an overall vision of Archiving, Engaging and Encouraging the living Western Esoteric Tradition. I started the benefit anthology project to help promote newer works in the Western Esoteric Tradition to the audience of the Hermetic Library and beyond. The anthology project also further raises awareness about the corpus and culture of magick and ritual.

This is the second issue from the Hermetic Library Anthology Project, and is being released on Imbolc in Winter 2012. I have 6 tracks by 6 artists this time around. This playlist starts strong with a track about moving from darkness into light, through an invocation and liberation of the divine feminine that is also a lament about loss, followed by a fantastic new cover of a Coil track. The playlist continues with a bright track but that is followed by some gritty and creepy noise to remind us that the light hasn't fully returned. After that I, for my part, am glad of a reminder that the days are getting longer, so there is a final track which brings us back to the theme of returning mercy and light. Quite a nice playlist that works well with the season.

I encourage you to check out the Hermetic Library at Hermetic.com, if you aren't already familiar with it, as that’s the reason this project exists and may also offer inspiration to you. The site was started in 1996 and has ever since consistently been an extremely popular resource for students and researchers interested in the Western Esoteric Tradition. You may also wish to check out other posts at the Hermetic Library blog and the Twitter and Facebook reflections to see how the library engages people in a living Western Esoteric Tradition.

Please join the Hermetic Library in promoting these artists who have contributed their work to this benefit anthology album project. All proceeds from album sales will support the library to help cover hosting costs and other expenses like materials acquisitions.
