    Mozart was a willing and proud member of the Freemasons, but it has been speculated elsewhere that the typical member of this secret sect was prosperous, where Mozart was not. Puchberg, above, references not a town as might be supposed, but a generous Masonic patron. It is within possibility that Mozart needed the Masons more than they needed him. Some of my favorite masonic oriented historical fiction, is written by Brother Michael Karpovage. He has two novels, "Crown of Serpents" and "Map of Thieves". The main character is a Freemason, and both books contain plenty of masonic references and story lines.

    There is a book about the Masonic influence in Mozart's music, "The Masonic Thread in Mozart", , from an unsuspected Communist author, Katharine Thomson. It shows the influence of Masonic ideas in music, and is interesting because it also shows how Mozart expressed these ideas in his music and sought to influence his listeners through feelings. Source: Ars Quatuor Coronatorum, "Bro. Mozart and some of his masonic friends," Herbert Bradley. vol. xxvi (), pp. Note Frederick Smyth, Paul Nettl, and others maintain that the actual Raising date is unknown. Lewis L. Main Jr. and Jacques Chailley state he was raised on Ap Cf.

    Mozart's lodges. Mozart was admitted as an apprentice to the Viennese Masonic lodge called "Zur Wohltätigkeit" ("Beneficence") on 14 December [1] He was promoted to journeyman Mason on 7 January , and became a master Mason "shortly thereafter". [1] Mozart also attended the meetings of another lodge, called "Zur wahren Eintracht" ("True Concord").   An exploration of Mozart's strong ties to Freemasonry and how its principles profoundly shaped his musical work - Reveals how Mozart structured his music on Masonic ritual and ceremony to provide a musical lexicon of Masonic symbols - Shows that Freemasonry plays the same role in Mozart's work as Lutheran Christianity plays in that of Bach Thanks to recently discovered .

Very interesting, but at times it seems a bit of a reach. Mostly, however, the analysis is s: 9. In the earlier book, Langdon was found decoding timeless legends of the Knights Templar. In the new novel, he's again tracking the age-old. Described as “an Enlightenment allegory, veiled in Masonic ritual,” The Magic Flute was Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s final opera.

A prolific composer, Mozart’s portfolio of works included over six hundred pieces of symphonic, chamber, operatic, and choral music. Of all his compositions, The Magic Flute receives a distinctive status due to its critical acclaim and public.

According to historians, Mozart was initiated into a Masonic lodge in Vienna at 28, and eventually became a Master Mason. He wrote at least eight pieces of music for the Masons. Chailley, a professor of music history at the Sorbonne, reveals the coherence of the opera and the hidden significance of its characters and situations.

The author relates each of these elements to the esoteric tradition from which they emanate and to Mozart's own involvement with the 4/5(6).

Mozart knew, through his experience, that the number three was fundamental and carried a message. In the Lodge, this number underlies the three luminaries of freemasonry (the Compass, the T-Square, and the Book of Sacred Law). Mozart's own lodge "Zur Wohltätigkeit" was consolidated with two others in Decemberunder the Imperial reform of Masonry (the Freimaurerpatent, "Masonic Decree") of 11 Decemberand thus Mozart came to belong to the lodge called "Zur.
