A Bard's Book of Pagan Songs

A Bard's Book Of Pagan Songs: Stories And Music From The Celtic World


Lady of the Moon, Maiden, Mother, Crone, Granter of the Boon, With you we're not alone. We honor you tonight, As we read the rune. Love within your light, Lady of the Moon. These are the lyrics to just one of the more than fifty songs, chants, and invocations you'll find inA Bard's Book of Pagan Songs by Hugin the Bard. The book begins by explaining the nature of a bard's life. It is more than just singing songs. It is sharing the ancient stories and helping to build the community. It is functioning, when need be, as a spiritual guide. And it is being able to entertain with song. There are two types of songs in this book. First, there are more than a dozen songs based on stories from the ancient Welsh book, theMabinogion. Songs include "Rhiannon of the Birds," "Caswallon's Quarry," and "The Dreams of Arianhrod." The second part of the book has over forty songs, chants, and invocations, beginning with one for each of the major festivals such as "The King Shall Return" for Imbolc and "Dark Night" for Samhain. Then there are a wide variety of tunes that share Hugin the Bard's thoughts, experiences, and ideas, such as "Knights of the Moon, "They Call Us Witches," and "Goddess Delight."For each piece of music you will find the story or explanation for it along with the lead sheet, lyric sheet, and chord chart. In order to really experience this music, every copy of this book now includes, absolutely free, a CD featuring sixteen of the songs from this book!
