About Music and Its Secret Influence

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.

Exploring the works of classical composers such as Bach, Handel, Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Schumann, Chopin, Wagner, and Strauss, Scott reveals how their compositions were actively influenced by a hierarchy of initiates, evolved spiritual intelligences, and devas to make the way fertile for human spiritual evolution. Scott explains how humans are composed not only of a physical body, emotional body, and a mental body but also a sensation body that acts as the bridge between the physical realm and the hierarchy of initiates. Scott shows how the music of great composers affects not only those listening but also society as a whole--from Beethoven’s influence on the creation of psychoanalysis to Chopin’s musical influence on the emancipation of women.

About the Author(s) of Music and Its Secret Influence

Cyril Scott (1879-1970) was an English composer, writer, and poet. The youngest student of his time accepted to The Hoch Conservatorium in Frankfurt, Germany, Scott was hailed at the beginning of the 20th century as the father of modern British music. He wrote several other books, including An Outline of Modern Occultism, The Great Awareness, and The Initiate trilogy.

Praise for Music and Its Secret Influence

“[Music and Its Secret Influence] provides a fine history of classical music’s evolution, the effects of specific composers on music in society, and how music holds suggestive qualities for intuitive thinking. The result is an outstanding survey linking spirituality, culture, and music history in a strong pick for any music or new age library.”
Midwest Book Review, May 2013

“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.”
Monthly Aspectarian, May 2013

“What may, at first, seem to be an insurmountable undertaking is actually an easy to read, intriguing adventure of music and spirituality, all the more important due to its historic importance as a piece of social commentary on early 1930s Britain and Europe.”
Bruce Stringer, New Dawn, July 2013

“Scott predicts the music of the future and how people will understand the relationship between color, sound, healing and the deva world. This book will likely appeal to anyone interested in the inner essence of music and its impact in our lives.”
The Beacon, July 2013
