Spirit of Albion​/​Wooden Box

from by Spiral Dance

/
  • Compact Disc (CD)

    Step through the Sylvan Doorway into the realm of the Goddess and the Green Man, where the horned one walks the leaf-dappled pathways and bright Áine dances in the greenwood at Midsummer.
    Feel the spirit of the trees and hear the stones whisper in a land where the Fae will sing you into another time and space.
    Come closer to the fire as the shadows lengthen and the beauty of the night surrounds you; dance to the tunes of your ancestors, hear the legend of Odin’s Wild Hunt and dark tales of immortal desire. And then remember the wise ones who have gone before.
    Spiral Dance bids you welcome.

about

Damh the Bard’s powerful and stirring song about the sacred land of Albion. Not only do we thank Damh for giving us his full support in performing this song but he has also joined us in the recording process.

lyrics

The crane the wolf the bear and the boar
No longer dwell upon these shores
You say the Goddess and God have gone
I tell you they live on in the cities and hills
And in circles of stone
The voices of the Old Ways
The Spirit of Albion is calling you home
An isle so fair an isle so green
Known by many names
Feel the pulse the pulse of the land
The blood boils within your veins
Someone go down to the Holy Well
And raise the Spirits there
Lay a feather on a stone
With a flame and a lock of hair
From Manwydden’s crashing sea
To the moor and the Highland Glen
From the Faerie Hills home of the Sidhe
To the veins of the Broad and the Fen
Someone go down to the Holy Trees
Of Oak and Ash and Thorn
Utter a charm in the verse of three
Till the Summer King is born
Ride the white horses carved into the hills
Walk to the Hanging Stones
Bow to the might of Cerne Abbass’ height
Feel the peace in the Ancestors’ homes
Someone go down to Wilmington
Where the Giant guards the way
Step into the Otherworld into the womb
Where centuries pass like a day
