The Analectics is a compilation of the collected songs of the Vanrial, an order of artists who lived on the slopes of the Silent Mountain in Jah Keved. This compilation of songs was collected by the scholar, Corvana. Many such scholars believe that the script and the songs themselves were composed in Dawnchant.[1]

History of the Songs[]

For centuries, the Vanrial have sung these songs and claimed that they were written in Dawnchant by the Heralds themselves.[1] However, while the Vanrial have the words of those songs, any knowledge of the meaning of those ancient scripts have been lost and those vocalizations are now just sounds.
