Further information:

This CD is one of a series of three workdiscs offering parts for a wide range of simple songs and chants which can be used at a range of occasions.

Drawing on many different sources, this collection of 47 chants and songs takes us through the four seasons and some of their corresponding festivals (eg Christmas, Beltane, New Year), times of day (morning, evening, night) and includes a selection of meal-time graces and alternative birthday songs.

This CD has been created by Natasha Hood (Celebrant and Interfaith Minister) and Karine Polwart (well-known Scottish singer-songwriter). Using only their natural voices, the songs are presented with the tune and harmony parts for each one sung separately before being put together.

The songs are drawn from many traditions; they are ‘holy, silly, sacred, embracing and heart-warming’. The CD is professionally recorded to a high quality and comes with a booklet setting out all the words.

Singing our Greetings and Farewells
Singing the Cycle of Our Lives
