"Emerald Rose", by the Celtic group, Emerald Rose.
I have had the great pleasure of seeing this band perform on their "home turf" and they are truly wonderful people, and have a great celtic sound with a Wiccan flair.
"Bending Tradition", by Emerald Rose.
Another album by this group, with more Pagan oriented material, as well as more traditional sounding material. The last song, "Hills of America" always makes me cry, very moving and beautiful.
"Goddess Chant", by Shawna Carol
This album has seven positive reviews on Amazon, and is one that will grace any collection and be a favorite over and over.
"Ancient Mother", by Robert Gass and On Wings of Song
This album has many different chants in various styles to many aspects of the Goddess, there is something for everyone on this album. I have listened to this while driving, while setting and taking down our festival campsites, and have bellydanced to some of these numbers!
"Fire and Stone: Pagan Rock Volume 1", by various artists
This CD is the first-ever compilation of contemporary music by pagan musicians. Styles range from folk-rock to progressive rock, representing nine independent artists from the USA and Australia.
"Come Down", by Velvet Hammer
This truly wonderful band has performed at many Festivals and has now changed their name to "Dreamtrybe" but their music continues to be moving, soul stirring, and fabulous. The drums in their songs are their heartbeat, and the lyrics are beautiful. Looking forward to more albums by this group.
"Incantations" by Sharon Knight
"At last! A hip and holy musician that's sexy, smart, and decisively Pagan. Knight's "Incantation" ignites the inner vision; her songs are inspiring and richly spiritual. Her technique blends the ancient and modern, and has a strong Celtic-fusion feel that evokes Dead Can Dance, Loreena McKennitt, and touches of Led Zeppelin."
"Spirit" by Caroline Lavelle
From funk to classic folk, Ms Lavelle's vocals really stand out, a beautiful and strong feminine voice. Her lyrics are of equal caliber, and I have heard that she is touring now with Loreena McKennitt. Looking forward to more albums from this lovely lady.
"Wytches" by Inkubus Sukkubus
Don't let the name scare you off, this heavy rock band has some wonderful witchy songs, and also other goth type albums. If you love rock, you gotta hear this album. Fortunately you can, their website has MP3's that you can download and hear before buying.
"Chants: Ritual Music" by Reclaiming and Friends
One of the best chants albums you will ever find, these are the chants and songs that you hear again and again at Pagan festivals and circles. Ever wanted to KNOW all the words to that chant that you can only remember the chorus of? Well, all the words are included with the album so you don't have to guess!
"The Music of Gwydion" by Gwydion Penderwen
Gwydion has gone to the Summerland, but his music will live on for lifetimes. THE premier Bard of our era, his songs have inspired so many people. You have probably heard many of his songs redone by other artists, and this CD contains the songs of both his tapes, Faerie Shaman and Songs of the Old Religion. I am so happy that these have been made available again, this is music that should never be lost.
"Welcome to Annwyn" by Deborah & Rick Hamouris and Friends
Another of the original inspiring tapes of our era, this one was dedicated to Gwydion after his passing. Many of these chants and songs have become known throughout the world, these are the original versions.
"Carry Me Home" by Todd Alan
Todd Alan is a veteran of the Pagan Festivals and I have seen him perform quite a few times. This album is just one of many of his, and all are professionally produced and professional quality. He takes songs and lyrics that others have written and gives them an inspired feeling and a new face. Many old favorites have gotten a "sound lift" from Todd's many talents.
