There are many ways to make contact with angels, and music is a powerful way to open up communication. Our wonderful author, Zanna Blaise, has uncovered a method for working with angels that brings something completely new to magick.
When Damon Brand set about publishing books that shared our magick, I said that we had to stick to books. If we ever started selling crystals or magickal jewellery or fancy wands or anything like that, I would leave The Gallery of Magick, because our magick’s meant to feel more profound than a trinket or gimmick. I know, I know – there’s nothing wrong with crystals and jewellery if you like those things. But if we sell anything other than knowledge it runs the risk of making us look like a New Age shop, when we actually think of magick as something deeply spiritual and profound and effective. Nobody argued with me. (There’s news of a new book at the end of this post!)
When Zanna first mentioned that she was composing angel music I thought she might be talking about the twinkly, tinkly New Age music that drives me crazy. And I worried that it might make our whole magickal project look a bit crass. I was wrong.
Zanna told me not to hype this up, but I think what she’s done is mind-blowing. By working with angels, she’s created inspired music that sounds vast, universal, personal, deeply emotional and utterly beautiful. You can think of it as a way to connect with angels and use it to enhance your angelic magick. What’s she created is truly an echo of angels.
The most exciting track for Gallery of Magick workers is Raziel. The choir makes a direct call to the archangel, and even chants out one of the divine names used in the ritual you’re familiar with. Powerful stuff.
