Pagan Chants and Prayers

Pagan and Wiccan Songs and Chants

Pagan chants are often taught at festivals or public rituals, and are rarely written down. For this reason, they tend to change and mutate as they are being passed on; there are often multiple variations of a chant which are passed around in different geographic regions or social networks.
