The creation of the original “Syllabus of Magic – Merlin’s Quest” goes back to 1997, and was Neil H’s fifth release.
Inspired by the chapter "A Coversation with Merlin" from the book "Journey into the New Age" 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 featured djembe drumming (kabudu style) by Torr McFarlane, giving the album a haunting moodiness and old world charm.
The cover artwork for this album is called "Transformation" by
