Hail, the Turning Year!: A Chase Hill Songbook
Hail, the Turning Year! is a collection of original songs for rituals honoring the Anglo-Saxon and Norse gods. Composed and sung over the course of two years of community ritual practice in the mountains of Vermont, these songs speak to the changing seasons, the landscape of earth and sky, and the spirits and gods who inhabit the world alongside humankind. Extensive notes on the composition, technical performance, and ritual use of each song accompany the collection, as well as complete wordsheets for personal use.
