This compilation of Panthea and Wychwood Children music has been released in commemoration of my friend and sister Dana Lisa Rondeau, who succumbed to cancer today, on Thursday August 9th, 2012.
The Wychwood Sessions is an enchanting collaboration between Rikki LaCoste and Jenny Robert. Between 2011 and 2012 Rikki and Jenny teamed up to create the Magickal Musick project, Wychwood Children. Although no longer active since August 2012, you can still listen to more Wychwood Children musick at www.wychwoodchildren.ca
, and they also have a Facebook Group Page. The songs on this album, The Wychwood Sessions, were written and/or arranged by Rikki LaCoste of Panthea.
Dana Lisa Rondeau struggled with physical and emotional issues for most of her life before she finally succumbed to cancer today. Yet, she always threw herself into a life full of help and compassion and joy, and forever appreciated the wonders and the gifts that life brought to her and to others. This is who she was, and is, and that is how she will always be remembered by her countless friends and admirers, of whom I count myself.
Thank you Dana, for everything you have done, and for who you were, who you are, and what you will become.
~ Rikki LaCoste
Blessed Be and 93
