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
