Synopsis

Amazon.com
Led and produced by indie folk musician Alice Di Micele, whose stunningly emotive voice booms like a rolling river through five glorious octaves, Circle of Women is a largely public-domain collection of sacred women's songs. Beware, thou Sister Irony, this is an earnest bunch who aspire to crone-dom from their Birkenstocked tootsies to their feral grins and untouched grays. Circle is indeed granola earth-girl crunchy--a little witchy-poo cast-a-circle in honor of the great goddess. But, sister-girlfriend, it's some groovulous good stuff in which six vastly differing voices lift to the heavens as spirits follow. And while the mostly recognizable a cappella tunes are certainly lovely, it is the sharing that is most beautiful. These are simple rounds, chants, and melodies intended for intergenerational gatherings, groups, and gaggles of Ya-Ya Sisters, whether it be round a fire, at a protest, in a fast-driving car, or on a porch watching the sky crack with lightning. Sing it loud, sing it proud. Feels good, huh? --Paige La Grone

An absolute must in honor of the Goddess!

"This CD has been such an inspiration for my love of the Goddess/Mother Earth. I use it in ritual and it is a constant strengthening tool for me during every day use. . ."Woman am I, spirit am I. . .I am the infinite within my soul. . ." I find myself humming these chants at work! Thank you "Circle of Women"!!!!!!"

"100% great listening. One of the best collections I have ever heard. You can't go wrong with this one. Some of the best familiar pagan music and some others worth familiarizing yourself with."
