Thread Name: Pagan Songs
Subject: Pagan Songs
This is a spin-off from something another poster mentioned in relation to pagan Yule songs.

A friend of mine who also likes to sing and gets out and about quite a lot in all kinds of accoustic circles, has sung to me a small handful of 'pagan songs'. I'd not heard any before, but a couple that she sang in front of me and another friend were very lovely and moving, especially in the context of a blossoming apple orchard last May Day! So I've been quite curious since, and have looked on the web for some more in that ilk.

Unfortunately I can't say that I've been all that impressed with the little that I've found. A few rather lack-lustre dirges at best. Maybe I haven't looked hard enough, or in the right places?

Can anyone send me in the right direction to discover more, or am I better simply sticking to discovering more traditional song?
