Blade of the Sidhe
(Wren Walker and Fritz Jung)

A soft purple glimmer
breaks over the hill
All while the land is calm and still
Ripples break from the silver pond
A power strikes from far beyond

A golden shaft of light breaks free
beneath the surface lies destiny
Wayland's magic forged in hard steel
Sets the spell now and makes it real

Excaliber, Come set us free
Shows us what we're meant to be
Faerie faith, it's never gone
Sword to Sword
the power flows on...

A pale fair hand all draped in white
holds the hilt of the sword of light
Sunshine sets the runes a flame Well
it breaks the silence
reveals the name

Three times branished
the time is come
Those of the blood can hear it's song
Strength and love is ours today
joined as one now
human and Fey

Excaliber, Come set us free
Shows us what we're meant to be
Faerie faith, it's never gone
Sword to Sword
the power flows on...

Well... oh what we've known for so long
Witch to Witch
It flows on
Sword of the light
Blade of the Sidhe
Holds the truth
Sets us free

Faerie faith is never gone
Faerie faith___ Is never gone !

For July 2001 I am honored to offer a tune called Blade of the Sidhe.

In the final days of the CFOTD project it was a few weeks before Starwood (my planned release date) and I only had 10 tunes completed. I needed a couple more to finish this up and I needed them fast. Wren and I had been dating for a few months at this point and she was "sleeping over" ... I had talked about doing a tune in 3/4 (your basic "waltz thru the heather" kind of feel) ... Wren, ever the vampire in those days, was typically up all night and one morning I awoke to a wonderful gift from her. During the night she had whipped out the lyrics to this tune. Thanks Honey!

With the Pagan community all abuzz about this weeks premier of the TV mini-series "Mists of Avalon" it makes sense to give this tune away at this time.

Blade of the Sidhe was an awkward tune to write (musically) and record. As a Rock Drummer, the 3/4 time signature was not a natural feel for me but I did gave this my all. this tune features some solid harmonies as well as some acoustic guitar harmonics that really worked.

A Quick Listen: It's been a couple of years since I have even listened to this tune, but to help jog the memory I just gave the mp3 file a spin... Hummmm, The accuracy of the rhythm is tighter than I remembered... The simple two part acoustic guitar sounds nice in stereo and in many spots the 3 part vox harmonies really do work.

In celebration of the "legend", Wren and I offer this gift of music from us to you.

In Your Service,
