Subject: RE: Chants vs. Song: why don't Pagans *sing*
CU, I followed your link and found the thread open, so I refreshed it, but I agree, this is different and, I think, deserves its own thread.

I don't know anyone around here, but in the past when I've been around with other pagans mostly what we did was sing. There were a few chants, but mostly we sang, used drums, flutes, and danced. I'd find it kind of strange to be a group such as you've described.

Maybe start out with some very simple songs? Or, if they are open to it, play them a CD of some of which you are fond? I did print out the words to several for our loose-knit group and the shy ones seemed more comfortable joining in after that.

Can't wait to hear/read your carol! Thanks,
