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.

MIND, BODY, SPIRIT. The role of music in the evolution of humanity - Reveals how a hierarchy of initiates, evolved spiritual intelligences, and devas actively influenced the musical compositions of geniuses to transmit great truths through music - Explores the influence of the classical composers Bach, Handel, Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Chopin, Schumann, Wagner, and Strauss--from Beethoven's influence on the creation of psychoanalysis to Chopin's musical influence on the emancipation of women Composer and author Cyril Scott explores the role of music in the evolution of humanity and shows how it has pushed human evolution forward. He explains that music has a profound effect on history, morals, and culture and is a more potent force in the molding of character than religious creeds or moral philosophies. Whereas mediocre musicians reflect only their own times, inspired ones help determine the character of the future.
