The creation of the original 'Syllabus of Magic – Merlin’s Quest' goes back to 1997 on cassette tape.
Inspired by the chapter 'A Coversation with Merlin' from the book 'Personal Journeys' by Chris Porter.
The album represented a mystical journey back to the times of legend when Merlin’s magic affected the lives and visions of a hopeful nation emerging upon a changing world.
The album also features djembe drumming (kabudu style) by Torr McFarlane, giving the album a haunting moodiness and old world charm.
This is a 2 CD deluxe presentation with CD 1 being the full album and CD 2 the full Story written and narrated by Chris Porter. I wrote a new underscore as a soundscape to enhance the story and give a more mystical feel.
This 1000 only limited edition comes in a book format where you can also read the story yourself or just sit back and relax with the CD's.
The cover artwork for this album is called 'Transformation' by
