Bardic Song of the Month – May 2015

This month’s Bardic Song is called “Peace Be With You“. It is a simple tune that has a nice poetic feeling to it for easier repetition and the melody line is rather easy.
I intended for this song to end a Ritual on peaceful terms, allowing the Participants to go off humming it in their heads feeling serene and at peace. It has a positive message that there is harmony in life and love is with you and kind. It also offers Gratitude to Deity at the end.

As much as possible, all songs are created as a single page in pdf format for easier printing and reading. If you play the piano, these songs are simple enough to pick up right away. If you don’t have the musical inclination, an MP3 file is attached for easier listening and learning.

Bardic Song of the Month

December, 2014

This month’s Bardic Song is called “Community Song”. It is a simple tune that has 4 lines for easier repetition and the melody line is rather easy.
 
When I initially created this song, I wanted it to have a sense of Community. Some of the words are taken from a Circle Casting I learned from a Shaman many years ago. After incorporating those words, I noticed the word ‘unity’ in the Community and thought I should take advantage of it… and so I did.

Bardic Song of the Month – November 2014

This month’s Bardic Song is called “Air Song”. It is a simple tune that has 4 lines for easier repetition and the melody line is rather easy.

When I initially created this song, I wanted it to instill energy within as well as without. Based on a Smudging technique, this tune was written to include all six directions surrounding a person ending with the 7th point within. The words are interchangeable, meaning you can substitute the word ‘air’ for another word, but you’d have to alter the last line to make sense with the new word.
For example, exchange ‘air’ for ‘love’ and the last line could be ‘a love that grows’. In the end that last line should rhyme with ‘below’ of the third line…

Bardic Song of the Month

October, 2014

This month’s Bardic Song is called “As You Cross the Veil”. It is a simple tune that has 4 lines for easier repetition and the melody line is rather easy. It is something to use in your Samhain Rites or during a Memorial Service.
When I initially created this song, I wanted it to be celebratory with a positive sound and melody. Too many times, dirges are written in a minor key, making them sound sad and mournful. Thus, this simple ditty was written in a major key. The message instills the concept that we accept the person is crossing the Veil and we wish them peace on their Journey.
