Songs from the Magical Tradition – Jerry Bird
Songs from the Magical Tradition makes no assertions other than the fact that there is a very strong element of supernatural magic contained within a substantial part of the Britsh folk song tradition. Ancient tunes and lyrics that transcend time have a meaning and significance that has hardly been guessed at till now. Jerry shows us the history and interpretation of the lovely old music that we all share. Songs from the Magical Tradition presents an anthology of songs, along with extensive notes on their historical context, imagery, and possible origins. No firm conclusions are drawn, and the reader is left to decide for themselves how relevant the songs might be in the wider contexts of paganism and magic.
