The polymath Prof. HERMANN BECKH, Dr. jur. et phil. (1875-1937) is being rediscovered. This linguist, Orientalist and Christian priest - an active music-lover, who also wrote music - penned pioneer works on our musical system still respected by musicians and musicologists. Beckh also champions the music drama of Richard WAGNER.

In The Parsifal=Christ=Experience in Wagner's music drama - referring to Wagner's own letters and a most remarkable letter of Nietzsche - Beckh faces the deepest inner question of our time, identified by Wagner. In the poetic libretto and remarkable music of his final creation, Wagner presents the Grail legend and its imagery. The psychological drama and its ultimate solution is accessible to all those who reflect on their experience. Beckh's original insights bring a new and powerful light to the search for meaning of our age, for a knowledge of the heart. The reader meets the real Wagner, acknowledged by Bruckner himself as "the master".

ALAN STOTT, musician and translator of Beckh’s Collected Works, includes articles by Prof. Dr Dr Hermann BECKH and Lic. Emil BOCK on Wagner’s whole artistic contribution, with a study by Dr Rudolf FRIELING on King Ludwig II. These articles by founder priests of the non-sectarian “Movement for Religious Renewal”, The Christian Community, originally appeared in the journal of that name. Alan Stott’s translations of the astonishing all-round musician Christoph PETER, The Language of Music in Mozart’s “The Magic Flute” and Rests and Repetition in Music, are published by Anastasi Ltd.
