We are the third oldest continuously published pagan periodical in the world!
Recent "Reviews": I have been very remiss in presenting reviews and keeping up with all the great stuff that is out there. It seems I come across some thing worthy weekly. Here's a brief summary of some of the more interesting items: I have limited quantities of the following Kulgrinda CD's I brought back from my most recent trip. All are sung and chanted in Lithuanian, and accompanied with traditional instruments. The included booklets on all three CD's do have English liner notes as well as translations. They're $21.00 each which includes postage. Make check to: FREYA'S FOLK, PMB 165, 537 Jones Street, SF, CA 94102-2007. The first one is Ugnies apeigos (which translates as “Rite of Fire”) . SOLD OUT!! I actually attended this at Gediminas' grave mound in Vilnius in 2002. The second, Perkuno Giesmes, is a compilation of chants and invocations to Perkunas (Thor) . “Hymns to Perkunas are dedicated to the most prominent god in the Baltic pantheon – the thunderer Perkunas. In these hymns we sing about the Great God, the young Pekunas of spring – Joris, the Oak – the tree of Perkunas, the goat – the favorite animal of Perkunas, the hill – the place of Perkunas' sanctuary. . . These hymns are sung during holidays dedicated to Perkunas and during other Baltic religious events. (liner notes) ” One can even hear the thunder they invoked in the background. The third is simply and elegantly Prussian chants and songs. It opens with howling wolves and it is a delight to listen to even if you don't understand a word of Lithuanian. Besides these three CD's, I also have some copies of the second printing (all in sepia ink with delightful new chapter illustrations) of Jonas Trinkunas' seminal work on the Baltic faith, Of Gods & Holidays complete with bibliography and Glossary. Here's an excerpt from the Glossary: “Ragana – goddess of death and resurrection. Protectress of the cycles of nature, keeper of power of life within limits. All knowing, all foretelling. Simultaneously a beautiful and a horrible woman (the modern Lithuanian word ragana means “witch”) . Incarnations: primarily as a toad, but also as a goat, mare, crow, magpie, hedgehog, pike, carp, and other fish.” $21.00 postpaid from Freya's Folk.
