Lugh Return

A gorgeous chant that I've always associated with the winter solstice and return of the sun (though I could imagine singing it at other seasonal festivals as well, particularly the Summer Solstice or maybe Lughnasadh, being Lugh's feast). The I and II parts make a lovely counterpoint for each other.

I learned this song from Beverly Frederick's album Through the Darkness (**Buy Here**)

Winter Child, Summer King, Lugh return.
Winter Child, Summer King, Lugh return.
Born of darkness, child of light. (x2)
Born of darkness, child of light. (x2)
