Geoffrey Hodson (1886 – 1983) was an occultist, Theosophist, mystic, philosopher, and esotericist. For more than 70 years he was a leading figure in the Theosophical Society around the world. He studied fairies, nature spirits, and angels, writing many books on these investigations. Hodson was one of those who was drawn in by the Cottingley Fairies hoax. “The book records the results of certain clairvoyant investigations carried out by Mr Geoffrey Hodson on the effects produced by music upon the adjacent matter of the superphysical worlds. Eight compositions, including Handel, Bach, Mozart, Hadyn and Wagner were studied …Mr Hodson’s observations arising from his clairvoyant research were carefully taken down while each performance was proceeding, and to these descriptions pictures were produced by artists later.” (from jacket flap)
