Blood of the Ancients

Next >>> 

It's the blood of the Ancients that runs through our veins
And the forms pass, but the circle of life remains

 

- Ellen Klaven & Charlie Murphy

From Beth's Chant Page

  • This well-known chant is especially appropriate for Samhain or any time when ancestors are being honored.  It's a steady, serious chant which is pretty easy to teach.  The words have a tendency to mutate into "the forms change" (rather than "the forms pass"), which works well sound-wise, but has a somewhat different meaning.
  • The original recording is on Charlie Murphy & Jamie Sieber's Canticles of Light, performed with the Total Experience Gospel Choir
