Living Echoes of Ancient times was conceived during a Florida Tour when many people were asking for the melodies of the most famous chants shared at the Circle, around the fire and in Sacred Space. Many people also were asking for music with just harp, and this CD gives 10 tracks of melody medlies of the best of pagan chants, arranged with unusual instruments: celtic harp, mandolin, Djembe and some wind instruments.
You can play this for yoga, for meditation, and for Circle atmosphere, of at the office, where no-one need know, not even by reading the cover, that the music is pagan, and not just lovely Celtic music.
Living Echoes is Castalia’s fourth pagan Album and is becoming more and more popular as people realize it’s not just pagan karaoke: it’s live-enhancing spirit-music.
Castalia is a multi-instrumentalist, composer and singer who tours America and Canada playing for pagans at festivals, shops, Unitarian events and even large living rooms. She began her formal music career in 1979, and discovered paganism at about the same time. The two passions eventually brought her to the recording studio to record a regular folk album and then Sacred Space. After an eight year hiatus, she re-released Sacred Space with more songs and a new title, and stepped up her concert schedule. Two years later, Hidden was born. Two years after that…In Plain Sight, and in 2008, Living Echoes all instrumental….gorgeous.
