HARMONY OF THE SPHERES
According to the heretic sect of modern alchemy, the Harmony of the
Spheres is the natural balance between the physical and essential
universe. They believe that there is always a unified Harmony of the
Spheres in operation in the magical
atmosphere of the Great Underground Empire—a greater harmony of balance
composed from all of
the metaphysical elements of the universe. Earth, Air, Fire, Water, and
the "quintessence." When the Harmony of the Spheres is overtly
disturbed for any noticeable length of time, the magical atmosphere of
the Great Underground Empire attempts
to right itself. When the machinations of man or sorcerer preclude that
self-regulation from taking place, as what some believe happened during
the case of the Second Inquisition, the universe began to unravel. The
elements and essences begin to come apart at the seams.
The cadence of the musical notes C, D, E, B, G is the Harmony of the
Spheres. Alchemists believe that their can be no purity of the soul
without the divine notes. Thus when the four alchemists (Erasmus
Sartorius, Francois Malveaux, Sophia Hamilton, Thaddeus Kaine) worked
to purify a virgin for sacrifice during the first half of the tenth
century, this girl was required to continuously perform this cadence
and pieces of music incorporating it.
Both "The Harmony of the Spheres CONCERTO for Violin and Orchestra,"
Opus 35 composed by Peter L. Zorkovsky, and "The Harmony of the
Spheres: A Composition in Six Notes" composed by Madame Sophia
Hamilton, were both performed by Alexandria Wolfe.
