Revel in Step and Song by Bronwen Forbes
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


"See the blazing Yule before us": This is just one of the many ancient British folk songs we all know and love. Other tunes and symbols that tug on our memories have similar historical roots, hearkening back to a shared Pagan past. At one time interwoven into the spiritual fabric of everyday life, the dances, songs, and theatrical plays in the English folk tradition are now little known to most of the modern Pagan community. Reviving these vital traditions can bring new life to Renaissance festivals, neopagan rituals, and community events. Introducing lively music and entertaining performances from times long past, this descriptive how-to is designed for twenty-first century joviality.The songs, dances and plays of old are explained in their mythical, seasonal, and historical significance and outlined for easy reenactments. Simple-to-follow instructions detail six dances including the popular Abbots Bromley Horn dance, six full scripts for dramatic performances of Mummer's Plays (folk plays of death and rebirth), and over thirty songs with lyrics and music. Kick up your heels, hold high your skirts, and make merry the year through.
