“Whence Came You” is a track added by Mahatma Dalí in the Hermetic Library audio pool.
This is a rough cut of a track that appears on The Hermetic Library Anthology Album – Magick, Music and Ritual 1, and includes a sample of Aleister Crowley reading The Pentagram:
“The Pentagram” by Aleister Crowley
“In the years of the Primal Course, in the dawn of terrestrial birth, Man Mastered the mammoth and horse, and Man was the lord of the earth.
He made him a hollow skin from the heart of a holy tree, He compassed the earth therein, and Man was lord of the Sea.
He controlled the vigour of steam, he harnessed the lightning for hire; He drove the celestial team, and Man was the lord of Fire.
Deep-mouthed from their thrones deep-seated, the choirs of the æons declare The last of the demons defeated, for Man is the lorde of the Air.
Arise, O Man, in thy strength! the kingdom is thine to inherit Till the high gods witness at length that Man is the lord of his spirit.”
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.
