Question for Callisto

Post  Achrelus on Tue Apr 02, 2013 5:02 pm

You got me curious when you asked for it, what kind of music do you use in worship???

A small cache of music, both ancient and modern. My default choices:

Daemonia Nymphe - I particularly like "Calling The Twelve Gods", "Daemonos", "Dance of the Satyrs" and "Divine Goddess of Fertility", but they have a lot of wonderful pieces (they pull on Orphic and Homeric hymns).

E.S. Posthumus - Two brothers from Germany who do epic modern pieces. I'm partial to their "Isfahan" and "Nara" but they also have an extensive library.

Folkearth - is a modern collaborative of varying musicians, they play a lot of folk and heathen music. They have a "Hymn to Zeus" that I like.

Aegean Voices (I don't know if they're still around) - have a nice instrumental arrangement of the "First Delphic Hymn to Apollo".

Christodoulos Halaris - "First Delphic Hymn to Apollo" and "Hymn to the Sun" (Mesomedes? Not sure)

And various "odds n' ends" I've collected along the way, hymns to Athena and Persephone (modern). Vitamin String Quartet's version of "God Moving Across The Water" and a late 1960s hippy-folk song "Clotho's Web" by Julie Felix.

I am very fond of the lyre music of Michael Levy. He has many albums available.

When I do use recorded music, which is not especially often, it is his.

Here's a nice sample:

-Iulianic Hymn to Apollon-Helios, ll. 65-106

I like Mike Levy's work too (he also has a rendition of the First Delphic Hymn and Second Delphic Hymn). If anyone's interested, his mp3s are in a number of places on the 'net.

I don't use music during worship myself, though I'll usually put some on afterwards, while the candles are still burning and the incense is smoking. I have several sung or recited versions of the Orphic hymns which I downloaded from YouTube, and then I also have some music by Petros Tabouris (also spelled Tambouris) in one of his music albums which I bought in iTunes. He has musical versions of both Delphic Hymns, and of the three hymns by Mesomēdēs of Crete, and mor useful music and songs.

I have a few favourites as well, unfortunately I can't seem to figure out how to share the clips yet. But E.S. Posthumus - yes me too. As well as Vangelis, Era, QNTL, Troika (they have a wonderful hymn to Athena), Ralph Lundsten's nature work, certain works by Mike Oldfield (no matter that he's a Celt aboriginal apparently)

Thyepoleo. Orphic mysterial rites, is one of the albums I tend to favor during worship. There are 3 variations of prayer to all Gods, and a great hymn to the Mother of the Gods. It is available on iTunes.

Hm, I'm checking that out right now.

I've never come across that before in my iTunes explorations, nor even heard of it before.


You have no idea how in love I am with the fact that it's listed under 'Classical Music' rather than 'New Age'.

Like, I'm shaking with joy right now. And that's hard to get me to do.

Let's petition Apple to do the same for Petros Tambouris and perhaps even Daemonia Nymphe, and others if there are any!

Petros Tabouris I think comes up as 'World/International.' Daemonia Nymphe I think shows up as 'Rock'.
