Music for Winter Solstice

Winter celebrations are common to many cultures, and music is essential to celebration!   Some researchers believe the solstices have been the inspiration for rituals and believes associated with those times of the year.  The winter solstice coincides with holidays that use light in ceremonies and celebrations.

The Music Collection has CDs and sheet music to help you celebrate in style:

Celebrate the mid-winter Solstice with:
Firedance by Gaia.  Compact Disc 19342
Beautiful Darkness by Jessica Radcliffe. Compact Disc 18363
Megha Morganfield's Winter Solstice Carols.  Compact Disc 18460

If you are inclined to create your own music, try A Winter Solstice Singing Ritual: A Celebration of the Darkness and the Light with Songs and Stories.  This songbook includes a CD to help you learn the music.
