Freyja Chant

Hello, I came up with this in the shower today and had to write it down :D

It's a chant/song that can be done as a ritual in itself or as part of a ritual. I've also transcribed the tune to music - please forgive me any mistakes in that one because it's been over ten years since I wrote music down.

Ok so you have your chorus and you start with this and repeat after every verse. In a ritual setting you could go round the group and pass the horn with each verse and each person invents a verse before drinking from the horn before everybody else sings the chorus. A drum would also be good because in itself it has a driving beat to it and it feels quite primal to me. The pace would be quite important here and I think it could actually become quite ecstatic with the right conditions. I can't wait to try this one with others actually- lol that's if I can find others who'd want to!

The chorus is

Freyja Freyja beautiful Vanadis
Freyja Freyja beautiful one.

Here are some of the 'verses' I came up with - well the ones I can remember off the top of my head because I forgot my notebook.

v1 Green of the leaf and tears of gold
v2 Rhythm of the world, Volva wise
v3 Beloved of the people, shining one.
v4 The beating of the heart,the sap of the trees
v5 Lady of Odhr, once Gullveig known.

etc etc

Here's the music

Please excuse the blurriness - I was very hungover :D

I should be back around the 17/18th May until June so anytime around then. I'm thinking somewhere wild would be good with other lasses, maybe fire and a drum :D
