Bardic Song of the Month

Bardic Song of the Month – July 2015

This month’s Bardic Song is called “Element Song”. It is a simple tune that has a nice poetic feeling to it for easier repetition and the melody line is rather easy. Keep repeating the tune over as often as you wish. As the Energy of the Song reaches a peak, the leader should hold their hands up high and bring them down on the last word of “Peace!”

I wrote it in 3/4 Timing to give it a waltz feeling. Each line echoes the direction and ends with its corresponding Element. The verb offers a simple action for each Element. The song is intended to be rather fast, like a Viennese Waltz, but it can be sung at a tempo that feels most comfortable.

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.
