Thread Name: Songs for the Winter Solstice
Subject: RE: Folklore: Songs or the Winter Solstice
There is a genre of "carols to the Unconquerable Sun" in Romania, which seems to be a survival from the festival of Sol Invictis in pagan Rome. Google draws a blank, try a good music encyclopaedia. I've heard a few - lots of furious rhythmic stomping.
