“St James of the Butchery – Voices of the Other Order” is a track added by David B Metcalfe in the Hermetic Library audio pool.
“St. James of the Butchery, sat sick, and sad, and silent, looking ’round he saw nothing but fruit picked early from the tender tree. What could have been ripe when ready, left to rot in the grayish green light of an ever present evening.
Finding no companion to share his morbid revery, he turned to the voices of the Other Order and sought council in ancient wine.”
—from St. James & the Voices of the Other Order – A Hallucination (1933), by Lawrence Granier
The Hermetic Library audio pool is an auditory scavenger hunt for sounds and music of a living Western Esoteric Tradition.
Music and performance can be a form of ritual and magick. Works and artists have long been inspired by the ideas of Western Esotericism and Mysticism. This group is to help create a space for sharing, music and other audio, and connecting with artists who feel drawn to these topics and ideas, or, especially, incorporate and manifest ritual and magick in their works.
