about

The music of pre-conversion England and Old Frisia, eerily evocative in it's ability to speak to some long-lost yet never forgotten depth of the folk soul. Ancient and new compositions by various galdormen. The vocals are poems/songs in the Anglo-Saxon language accompanied by the Anglo-Saxon harp, penny whistle, drum and other instruments.

A PDF of the lyrics in Anglo-Saxon, Old Frisian and modern English translation is included with the purchase 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.

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