Subject: Help - Woman Sung Chant
From: Bat Goddess

Heard the recording about 15 years ago -- not sure if I ever knew the name of the female group that recorded it.

Chanted with a tune was --
"Earth my body, water my blood,
Air my breath and fire my spirit"
repeated throughout the song which was recorded over and with the chant.

It was a choral-type group I heard on a folk show -- probably categorized by the record industry as "Womyn's Music" or some such.

At the time, I looked for the information so I could buy a CD; still have it running through my head at appropriate times.

Thanks for any help...

Linn

Yes, Jeri, that's the song -- the arrangement/performance isn't exactly as I remember it (but all I REALLY remember is the "Earth my body, water my blood..." part).

Thanks!

Linn

(BTW, do you want a few pairs of reading glasses? I got new contacts and now I need readers a quarter diopter stronger for an expanded area; sigh.)
