about

People have been asking me for years when I'm going to release some seasonal music. Here is a decent, very quickly recorded version of my first Winter Solstice song, which I composed and recorded on the Longest Night. This one came out of nowhere, and it really snuck up on me! Hope you enjoy it.

Note: apologies to those who attempted to download this on Soundcloud and weren't able to. I wasn't aware until this problem arose that they'd cut off downloads of the track after a certain number of people had grabbed it! The fault is mine.

-S. J.

lyrics

Now comes the Solstice Night
I wish you safe and sound
whether snow be light
or heavy on the ground.

Our hearts bring back the light
as all the earth must do.
May stars fill up our sight
with wishes coming true.

My wish this Solstice Night
is grace and peace to you.

Now comes the time of year
when shadow yields the throne,
the lords of Oak and Holly,
the dance that must be done.

Keep faith and keep your candle.
The sun is sure to rise
o'er the sleepy fields of winter,
bringing beauty to our eyes.

Counterpoint lyrics
(inspired by "Shalom to You" by Carlton Raymond Young & Elise S. Eslinger):

Shalom to you now
Shalom, my friend
May bliss and beauty
bless you, my friend
Through all your living
and through your loving,
winter hearth and home
(holy is in the eye of the beholder)
be your own Shalom.

Upon this Solstice Night,
I wish you safe and sound
whether snow be light
or heavy on the ground.

Our hearts bring back the light
as all the world must do.
May stars fill up our sight
with wishes coming true.
My wish this Solstice Night
is grace and peace to you.
