"'Wanted, by retired clergyman, secretarial assistant with courage and imagination. Tenor voice and some knowledge of Hebrew essential; single; unworldly. Apply Philip Skale.' Robert Spinrobin needed the work, and he took the bait. He possessed the necessary qualifications: a thin tenor voice, not unmusical; a smattering of Hebrew which he had picked up at Cambridge because he liked the fine, high-sounding names of deities and angels; and courage and imagination. It was a job he lived to regret. For he was meant to be the final note in a 'human chord' designed to call out the true name of God ... which could prove the greatest blessing or the worst curse in all of creation"--Page 4 of cover
