Happy Lammas, All! Here is an excerpt from the lammas chant from my book Calendars. Though it says two voices, we performed it the other day in four groups of voices, just moving through the poem three times, and it worked out great. If I can get the technology down, I’ll also add the audio version from the Calendars CD
Bring the food, bring the grain.
Fill the earth’s belly full.
bring the food, bring the grain.
There are cold months ahead.
Give them peace in the ground.
From “Lammas Chant,” Calendars (Tupelo Press, 2003)
