The Primal Chorus

of the Sacred Wood


Following the themes of the first book, these essays look further into the distant past of humanity. Explore how the primeval beginnings of rhythm, dance, music, language and culture are represented in the poem, and how that informs the modern world.

Visit the Palaeolithic cave sanctuary, witness the primal sacred dance and see the birth of music as the lustful god Pan pursues the Arcadian nymph Syrinx. Hear the ‘Adamic’ language in the poem, Proto-Indo-European, the root of the modern languages of Europe. And trace the development of the human ego from the primeval fireside group to modernity.
