Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 087728315X, Paperback)

This book is not concerned with the technical side of music, but with a side of music that is unsuspected by the reading public and musicians themselves. When two unseemingly unrelated branches of human activity are brought into conjunction, facts may come to light which may add to the sum total of knowledge, while tending to materially alter previous conceptions. Contents: preliminary; biographical, analytical, aesthetical; esoteric consideration, the music of the deva or nature spirit evolution; historical; some occult prognostications.
