Calontiri Songs

In 2016 I attended the Great Western War in the kingdom of Caid. Being half way across the country, those that I camped with knew little of my home kingdom of Calontir except two things: First that we really liked shield walls in combat. Second, that we sing. A lot.

Embarrassingly, I knew no songs at the time and was unable to contribute to the songs around the campfire. But I promised that I would return with something to sing next year. Since then, I have worked to learn several songs. Some are the most well known Calontiri songs, but it's mostly what has caught my ear. A list of the songs I've learned well enough to feel comfortable singing is below. Those I've made good recordings of have links with lyrics and notes in most cases.
