about

Back in the mid 1980's, in pre-internet days, those involved in shamanism and medicine wheel teachings in the UK were very fond of singing simple chants, either in English, or from Native American cultures.

But there were few chants around, and no easy way to get to learn them. So Faith Nolton and Nicholas Breeze Wood gathered a motley crew of warm hearted people together and produced this album of chants, with perhaps more gusto than technical grace.

It was a 'moment in time,' and was great fun to do.

The original master tapes were lost long ago. This version of the album was extracted from an old cassette tape, so it is rather lacking in sound quality here and there; it was, after all, recorded in pre-digital days.

The album has not been available since 1995, but - in remembrance of days of great fun (and not always much skill) - here it is again.

We (Nick and Faith) hope you enjoy it.

These chants are mainly from the Native Americans
and follow, in energy, the progress of a day from dawn to dusk - a cycle that reflects the larger journey of each life.
