This collection of songs traces a year through its seasons, some of the ceremonies, some of the traditions and some of the attendant rituals. They are largely pre-industrial and in some cases, their roots lie in pre-christian rituals. Essentialy they are songs and customs that have been carried on by ordinary people who are attuned to the year's cycle and the need for a good crop: many of the "gusing" rituals are concerned with death and resurrection but in connection to the old year and new one rather than in a biblical sense.
