The Green Man by The DulciMates

The DulciMates are Deborah “DJ” Hamouris and Buffalo: two mountain dulcimers and two voices, creating beautiful four-part harmony together. In the spirit of the season, they offer two Holiday songs and five other traditional and traditionally-inspired tunes. Lovers of Celtic music and traditional ballads will delight in the sweet sound of these American folk instruments. "The Green Man" includes instrumental tunes as well as carefully-crafted vocal harmonies and a reading of Yates’ "The Song of the Wandering Aengus" accompanied by solo dulcimer. In addition, here are two original tunes (“The Cooing Cave” and “Fantasia on ‘A’ string”) and the title cut: a setting to music of William Anderson’s “The Green Man”.

A cappella arrangements are interspersed with guitar, Appalachian dulcimer and percussion. These original, traditional and Neo-Pagan favorites range from hearty songs you'll sing along with, to thoughtful ballads you'll listen to and remember. Many of these songs are written by many well known authors &composers;in the pagan community, such as Starhawk, Anodea Judith, Ian Corrigan, Gwydion Pendderwen, Ruth Barrett, Amber K, plus some songs we just liked the spirit of, and of course, some originals by Moonrise members.

Gaia's Voice: The Chorus of Life

Gaia's Voice, once a well-known Pagan chorus in the San Francisco Bay Area, performed on the West Coast for many years at festivals and gatherings. This is our first recording from 1990, and features founder Deborah Hamouris as choral director. The album includes both original sacred music and some re-written hymns from the Christian tradition. It is a wonderful album, and though Gaia's Voice is no longer with us, I hope other Pagan choruses will soon appear. Titles include: Gaia Speaks, The Chorus of Life, Stand Up for the Earth, Angel of Bells, Morning, Thank You for This Life, Unorthodoxology, Goddess/Water Medley, Pan, Metamorphosis, One With Our Mother, The Magic Wheel, Star Spangled Pagan buy this CD at CD Baby

Welcome to Annwfn

Deborah & Rick Hamouris & Friends: Siblings Deborah and Rick Hamouris picked up in 1986 with this recording where the late Gwydion Pendderwen had left off when a car accident took his life four years prior. Welcome to Annwfn was available only on cassette until Rick remastered this Neo-Pagan classic in late 2001 and reissued it on CD in 2004. Along with such friends as Anodea Judith and Buffalo, this collection of songs and chants remains a favourite among Pagans all over America with such standards as the title cut, "We Are a Circle" and "Horned One." No Pagan music collection is complete without this CD!

Best of Pagan Song

At last, there truly is a "greatest hits" album of the past 30 years of Pagan music! Here are the songs that have shaped the current resurgence of Pagan spirituality. Exclusive re-mastered tracks include the long-lost original Burning Times recording and several other rare musical gems from Gwydion Pendderwen, Catherine Madsen, and Velvet Hammer. The songs have been culled from literally hundreds of albums produced by Pagans since the 1970s, and feature popular musicians Gypsy, Todd Alan, Wendy Rule, Emerald Rose, Avalon Rising, and many more. They tell our history, and also chart the evolution of our thought and belief. What makes these songs Pagan? They may be about the ancient nature religions of the European continent, they may deal with themes such as life after death, being Pagan in a Christian world, or encountering figures from the Spirit realms. With extensive liner notes detailing the importance of each track and the artist who created it, this inspiring collection is a must-have for any Pagan music fan.

Breast cancer happens to 1 in 8 women annually. In 2015, I became one of them. This is my story in song – my fear, shame & anger; my gratitude, hope and compassion; even humor played its part in my healing. 1 in 8 expresses the message that creative response to a cancer diagnosis is one way through the fears, challenges, ravages, anxieties of treatment. 

Jazz guitarist Mimi Fox, a sister-survivor, joins me in collaborating on these songs, driving them into arrangements that bring true expression to each song’s meaning.
