On a primitive mission to altered consciousness Lord Alfred Tennyson was wont to employ his own titled name as rudimentary mantra. Mantra as basic magic. Mantra as Creative Word causing all things to be; the Word and the God/Goddess who speak, for all magical intents and purposes, becoming the same. Repetition inducing a link with the beginning; repetition unto trance.
In its own humble way, this short collection of unaccompanied folk chant treads this path. Wounded Knee weave a mesmeric and en-chanting spell.
