Chant for the Seasons

Chant for the Seasons is  #73 in the Unitarian song book Singing the Living Tradition.

Lyrics are by UU minister Rev. Mark Belletini. Lyrics are here. Lovely, aren’t they?

Grace Lewis-McLaren has adapted a Czech tune Praha for the song.

The video below is all I could find on youtube, but it will give you the idea of the rhythm if you’re not familiar with the tune.

Now we just need someone to choreograph this. Preferably before Beltane.

Here’s a self-confessed fangirl who wrote an ode to Mark Belletini. http://farfringe.com/stlt73-chant-for-the-seasons/

What I know is that Belletini’s birthday is the same day as Rev. Mark Morrison-Reed and Rev. Linda Thomson both of whom I worked with at the Canadian Unitarian Council.
