I found this on The Bards' Guild of Erdreja Website

Does anyone know what tune it goes to?

Code:
The Norscan Anthem

Marching ever onward
With discipline and pride
We do not fear the battle
Never will we hide
Our people are united
And honour plays its part
For ever will we carry
Norsca in our hearts.

For Vanaheim’s great mountains
Its people will inspire
Always reaching upwards
They climb forever higher
If paths be strewn with danger
Determined are we more
“To make a stand for our land
Vanaheim evermore”

On Orkneyjar, fair island
The people fierce and bold
Bring strength derived of living
Through winters harsh and cold
They’ll take the field of battle
And ever sing out loud
“Prepare to face the bravest
Orcadian and proud”

In Jottunheim the people
Will never stand alone
‘Till death they stand by comrades
Defending all they own
With honour are they fighting
And ‘till their final breath
They always will be singing
For Jottunheim, ‘till death

Together do these lands make
The greatest one of all
And while a Wolf still lives then
This place will never fall
With fierce pride and courage
Determined will we stand
For in our hearts we carry
The Wolves' great Norscan Land

Worryingly enough I seem to be able to get it to fit to the hymn 'Onward Christian Soldiers', Angels by Robbie Williams and Champagne Supernova by Oasis. Going to do something else before I get something really obscene like a Tellytubbies version lodged in my head!

I've heard this before, I believe it was on the "Wolf Songs" CD that Chalkie did a while ago.

Is that the same...

"Onwards Christian soldiers,
March into the holy lands,
You crude eyed Crusaders,
There's blood on your hands,
Blood on your hands."

Thread necromancy, at the request of Kathryn (aka Meg The Minstrel)! She's put all of her old recordings online for free, and the tune you're looking for is "Norsca", which is the last song in the "Wolf Song" section.

Ooh, thank you for that. :D She has an amazing, almost Maddy Prior-esque voice. :D
