A Bard’s Book of Pagan Songs: Stories and Music from the Celtic World
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, the Mabinogion. 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.”
