Prelude 03:10
Witan Theod 04:53


Aelfric tells the story of Garman Lord and the beginnings of Theodish Belief in the true eldritch mead-hall style; a masterwork of the scop's craft! 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 English) 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.

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