Greek Esoteric Music Theory


The study of Greek Esoteric Music is a lifelong pursuit, due to the quantity of surviving theory (much of it collected in Barker), its subtlety and complexity, and its connection with other Esoteric Disciplines (e.g. numerology, astrology, theurgy and alchemy). To this must be added two millenia of later esoteric investigations of Greek music (see Godwin HS and MMM for a selection).

The present work is primarily a set of annotated and cross-linked charts to serve as an introduction to the theory and practice of Greek Esoteric Music. The focus is on the esoteric aspects, including practical exercises, as opposed to the theory and practice of mundane music (interesting and worthwhile though that be).
