1. Dawn on the Salisbury Plain - The first glow of a winter dawn reveals Stonehenge â not the ruins we see today, but a pristine solid structure. It is the place of worship for the Druidic Celts of Southwestern England. We are one hundred years before the arrival of the Roman legions.
2. The Elders Gather - This music, English folk inspired, depicts holy men from miles around gathering at the site for an upcoming rite. The venerable Archdruid leads a Dagdic prayer for the continuance of the people.
3. Imbolc - The festival of Imbolc occurs at the first thaw signaling the coming Spring.
4. The Great Oak The Druids worshipped the Great oak trees and believed that their well being was tied to life itself.

12. Marriage Blessing â The Archdruid blesses the royal princess and her chosen.

18. The Passing of the Archdruid
