Album Notes
This CD is a journey through one cycle of year, from Samhain to Harvest Home. A CD long in the making, Gayla first had the idea for this collection many years ago but only recently finished all eight of the songs.

Ride Easy, Ride On is a song about the Morrighan's ride with the army of the dead across the human world on Samhain night and the images of death-into-rebirth associated with her.

A Child This Day is Born is a song about the sun rise on every Solstice morning, the rebirth of the new sun which will return and reign over the summer.

Brighid's Cloak is a song dedicated to the spirit of the triple aspected Brighid on Imbolc, patroness of poets, healers and artisans.

Spring is Here is was written for a Spring Equinox ceremony and speaks of the wonder and the joy of rediscovering the season of spring after a long winter.

The Dance is about a Maypole dance, and the timeless spark that exists within all hearts as we eternally dance around the “cherished well-worn path.”

One Part Shadow, One Part Light looks at the Summer Solstice from the perspective of the birth of the Dark Son as eternal counterpart to the Son of Light; how the seed of the opposite is found in each thing.

In the Light of a Thunderbolt is a joyful shout out to the spirit of Lugh, ancient Irish God of Many Talents, the enlightened one who brought the very idea of “art” to the Irish people and established a holiday in honor of his foster mother Tailte which we call Lughnassadh.

We Bring The Harvest Home is about the winding down of the fertile half of the year, the celebration of the harvest before the long winter sets in.
