    Bardic Song of the Month

    This month’s Bardic Song is called “Water Song“. It is a simple tune that has 4 lines for easier repetition and the melody line is rather easy. This song was written to be a simple round – part 1 repeats at the same time part 2 contiunes. There is a natural tendency for water to flow and so it shall. Part 2 of the song is almost like an echo, which reverberates as the beginning is over-toned with it at the same time. This song can be used to call a Quarter that assimilates the energy of Water, whichever that Quarter is to the individual or Group. As much as…

    Bardic Song of the Month

    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.   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,…

    Bardic Song of the Month

    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…

    Bardic Song of the Month

    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. As…

    Bardic Song of the Month

    This month’s Bardic Song is called “Mabon Song”. It is a simple tune that has 4 lines for easier repetition and the melody line is rather easy. I wrote this song to instill balancing energy. As you read it for chanting or singing, the words of the Song illicit an idea of finding balance, because the time of the year is also of balance astrologically. Typically written in a minor key, Pagan Songs have always grasped a sense of spirituality for me, which shows in my music as well. When I am writing Ritual, I always try to include something Bardic, whether it’s chanting, singing or a story to be told or a…

    Bardic Song of the Month

    This month’s Bardic Song is called “Casting the Circle”. 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 only to be three lines long to go with the 3 Circles you can cast around Sacred Space, but it was more natural to create 4 lines for rhyming. 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, a wav…
