Music from Lara St. John & Marie-Pierre Langlamet, "Bach:Sonatas"
Athena and the Seasons brought wreaths of grass and spring flowers to Pandora, original , all-giving. A shift from matriarchy to patriarchy in Greek culture befalls, as the life-bringing goddess Pandora is eclipsed, the death-bringing human Pandora arises. Thus, in the patriarchal mythology of Hesiod her great figure is strangely changed and diminished. She is no longer Earth-Born, but the creature, the handiwork of Olympian Zeus.
