“Music is the melody whose text is the world.” —Arthur Schopenhauer
“Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness.” — Maya Angelou

Music is integral to our lives. It gives voice to the feelings and thoughts that cannot be spoken. It has been used on battlefields as well as battles for the heart. It can heal and comfort as well as engender anger and hatred. It has been blamed for mass shootings as well as credited for bringing huge crowds together. It can reinforce cultural mores or break the rules. It fosters connections with the sacred and the profane. It is all around us.

Sabrina: I want freedom and power.

Prudence: He will never give you that. The Dark Lord. The thought of you, of any of us, having both terrifies him.

Sabrina: Why is that?

Prudence: He is a man, isn’t he?

Although dramatic programs on witches have been on television since the sixties, 2018 saw an unprecedented preoccupation with them. In addition to ongoing supernatural series, there are at least seven new witch-themed shows which started this year: The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, Charmed, Legacies, A Discovery of Witches, Light as a Feather, Disenchantment, and Britannia.
