CD Reviews

Don't miss this pagan classic
A. K. Beltaine | Ithaca, NY USA | 02/26/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Charlie Murphy was one of the best songwriters of the 80's. Pagans were lucky to claim him as one of their own. His collaboration with Jamie Seiber (a wizard on the cello) and the light rock band "Rumours of the Big Wave" creates an album full of life, spirit, meaning, and great dance-able music. Unlike so many Pagan albums, the quality of the album doesn't end with the lyrics. Charlie's voice is excellent. Mellow and on pitch. The musical backup is professional. And, of course, Jamie is a spectacular musician. Many of the chants from this and his other album (Burning Times) have entered the common knowledge of Paganism: "Light is Returning", "Blood of the Ancients" and the chilling "Burning times" with it's familiar "Isis, Astarte" chant/chorus.
This is worth a re-release. Barring that, try to find a copy for yourself, and revel in the excellent songwriting and performance."

"Charlie Murphy and Jami Sieber`s classic 1984 album of `New Ritual Music,` performed with the Total Experience Gospel Choir, a youth choir from Seattle. With an intoxicating fusion of energetic singing, upbeat chants, Jami`s beautiful acoustic cello, and instruments from around the world, "Canticles of Light" has been a major influence on the music of Neo-Paganism. Tracks such as the infectious "Light is Returning" and the soulful, haunting "Time To Love" are considered some of the finest Pagan performances of all time. track list # Light is Returning # Remembering # Blood of the Ancients # World Without End # Time To Love # Calling On the Spirits # We Remain Faithful"
