I have seen bot period and "periodesqe" songs performed in most area's of
this kingdom throughout the years, One of my favorites is _Giant_ by Stan
Rogers. Old traditionals are great and there is usually a smattering of
really period peices performed in period fasion. However most of what I have
heard in Ansteorra over the years is Original pieces and new words to old
melodies. In short we like a wide variety, but we love to hear of Ansteorra.
