I am looking for music to help me focus and relax during ritual.

A friend recommended "Immortal Egypt" by Phil Thornton and Hossam Ramzy.  I love it.  It makes me want to take up belly dancing or get back into fire spinning.

It doesn't make me want to ritualize. 

It's too bouncy.  I need some really, really soft ambient music with no words. 

Does anyone have suggestions?

I usually just use anything i can find in youtube.
I'm currently saving to buy a harp. If I could incorporate that into spell working that'd be awesome.

I'm gonna tell my son to join a circus so that death is cheap
And games are just another way of life
And I'm gonna tell my son to be a prophet of mistakes
Because for every truth there are half a million lies
And I'm gonna lock my son up in a tower
Till he learns to let his hair down far enough to climb outside.

I'll see if that's on Amazon.  Thank you.

Weirdly enough, some of what is on Jade Sol Luna's "Night Ritual" gets me in the mood.

Ironic, for someone who does ritual at 6:30 in the morning. 

I was in an Indian restaurant the other day and found myself entranced by some of the rhythmic, solemn Hindu chants.  I found myself thinking "I wish my religion had those..."

I really like to use "Meditation Music of Ancient Egypt" by Gerald Jay Markoe. You can actually find it on YouTube. Here's the link to the first of nine songs: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U776dQVnEQI

Achillea: The Nine Worlds.

There are some vocals, but few distinguishable lyrics, and the titles of the tracks have a Nordic focus, but I find it appropriate music for any flavor of ritual, really. Smiley

(I'm also a huge fan of the Battlestar Galactica soundtrack for ritual/religious music...but I'm weird like that.)

Well if you have like time Warner or satellite tv you could always try to the new age radio channel. That's what I use, since I'm too cheap to buy one of those new age-y CDs. It always gets me into the mood for ritual, and takes off some of the intial fear when I start ritual

I know, right? Haven't heard the music for Walking Dead but I'll have to check it out.


Yeah, I'm such a BSG geek that I can pretty much listen to a track and name it and the episode and season it comes from. Oh, and quote the scene it's in. >.<;;

I adore that show, I was out of the country when it started to air so I waited until it had finished - struggling to avoid spoilers as I waited - and then sat down and watched them through. So wonderfully well written, believable strong female characters, real angst and ethical questions. I'm still amazed that SyFy made it.

a note - that reply was to a spammer that got deleted.  which is why it appears to hang there and make no sense.

Normally we try to not delete things that have been replied to, but hey, early morning spammers .. blech.
