Enter the enchanting and mysterious world of the ancient Goths. Aelfric and HallDream present restored texts in the ancient Gothic language, in elder verse form, cleverly merged with authentic Visigothic melodies found in manuscripts preserved in the old Goth-lands of Spain. This breakthrough reconstruction now makes ancient, authentic Gothic music available for the first time ever. The vocals are poems/songs in the Gothic language accompanied by the Germanic harp, penny whistle, drum and synthesizers.

A PDF of the lyrics in the ancient Wulfilan Gothic language and modern English translation is included with the purchase of the full album. If you only buy single tracks or if you only need the lyrics, the lyric booklet PDF is available above under Merch.

AElfric is one of the main pioneers of the revival of traditional ancient heathen folk music.

He has also published 3 books about the Gothic tradition (see Lulu link below). ... more
