- Track notes -

01 First of four movements. Sense the lives of laborers during the copper age, their labors, their resting, their celebrations.

02 Second of four movements. Music for the artisans and tradesmen of the copper age.

03 Third of four movements. Music in the lives of the noble professionals of the copper age.

04 Last of four movements. Administrators of the first cities were volunteers, overseen by priests and accountable to an assembly of citizens in the copper age.

05 The first age of western civilization ends. The next began. We don't really know how or why, but doubtless many tears were shed.

06 First of four movements, for the bronze age.

07 Second of four movements. Music for craftsmen of the bronze age.

08 Third of four movements. Despair for medical treatment based on spells glorifying the king.

09 Last of four movements. "Victory at any cost," commanded the kings of the bronze age.

10 The bronze age fell to continual warfare between nation states, weakening land, economies, and caution. But mankind never stopped making love.

11 First of four movements. For some, in the lowest work there was freedom, during the iron age.

12 Second of four movements. Music to relax with, having completed a satisfying work, in the iron age.

13 Third of four movements. In the iron age, tax collection was a business for entrepreneurs.

14 Last of four movements. The mighty strive for godhood as power and ego centralizes from dozens of nations incorporated into empire.
