Subject: RE: Chants vs. Song: why don't Pagans *sing*
Atheists are pagans? Sikhs are pagans? Some dictionary...

When is a chant a song and when is a song a chant? Myself, I can't decide whether a song is a kind of chant, or a chant is a kind of song. But I don't think either way there is any big divide between whatever it is the two terms encompass.

And is a shanty a song or a chant?
