ATARAXIA-Arazzi-(Energeia-Italy-1993)

Ataraxia is an Italian neoclassical Goth opera[1] band who combine modern technology with archaic instrumentation over various media. They describe their music as a cross "between sacred and profane, ethereal and neo-classical, contemporary and early music". They make researches into the European legends crossing the Greek and Latin myths. Their lyrics are written in many ancient and contemporary languages. Many of their performances take place in locations the band believes to possess specific spiritual qualities. Since the beginning of the group in the late 1980s, they have released more than 20 original LPs.(from wikipedia)
They are still alive and kicking and their webpage is here.
The first edition of this tape was included in a blue fabric bag, with a 22 pages booklet in black & white.All the scans provided here.
I already posted their very first tape Prophetia.
Energeia was a gothic, experimental, industrial and modern classical label and mail order based in Napoli, Italy.
Founded by Davide Morgera (drummer for Underage, cult hardcore punk band from Naples) and Antonio Escalona. 
I am not sure if this label is still active.
Enjoy it.
Ps-this rip is been updated on 24th Jan. 2016-it is much better than the previous one.
