    A couple others in addition to some of the ones you listed that I had on my Spring Equinox playlist for our day celebration included Into the Green by Spiral Dance, The Return of the Sun by Kellianna, First Spring Day by Sub-Urban Tribe, O Ma Ma Ma by Abbi Spinner McBride, Spring Has Come by Shaam (an Islamic group, but an awesome Spring Equinox song nonetheless), and First Sign of Spring by Michelle Lewis (again, not Pagan, but an excellent embodiment of the sabbat). Pagan spring music can be a challenge to find sometimes, so thank you for sharing all of those!

    It certainly never occurred to me when I wrote Pagan words for “Lord of the Dance” that it would still be around 40 years later. Sidney Carter had written the version occasionally sung by Catholics to the Shaker tune, “Simple Gifts,” but Gwydion used a different tune for it when he graciously included it on his first album, which was, AFAIK, the first recording of specifically Pagan music. The “Spring Strathspey” on your list is by him also. It’s been 30 years since he passed over, but I still miss him.

    Thank you for continuing to include Gwydion’s music in your seasonal playlists. Apart from keeping aware of some good Pagan music, sales of Gwydion’s music and songbooks are a major source of support for ANNWFN, one of our country’s earliest Pagan sanctuaries. We are at a critical point currently–we are out of CDs, and wondering if we should start distribution via a download service

     Like many other people out there, I probably haven’t bought a CD in years…but I buy download music very frequently. Music distribution via paid download would be wonderful!
