about

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.

Track Name: T. Thorn Coyle - Hallowed Light
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.)
Track Name: Rev Chloe Kalombinah - Ma Re Ah
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
