DRUID DANCE – based on “In the Hall of the Mountain King” – by Edward Grieg
While Elizabeth was out on a doctor’s appointment this morning, I started to play this piece of music you are about to hear. It was the first time I was doing it on my Clavinova. I have not played it in over three years. And then just boom, out of nowhere, it popped up again (for reasons why, see below).
By the time Elizabeth returned home, I was in the midst of recording it already. Realizing that, she tried to slink by past me into the kitchen. I was so deeply into the music that I had not noticed her until she eventually crossed my line of vision. She was dancing to the rhythm of music. I smiled at her. (You’ll have a chance to see that on the video).
During the last four years, I have expanded the original theme by Edward Grieg into something that can best be described as a Druid Dance. Which is what my title for this recording is.
But you will also notice a pair of Tahitian dancers joining in with the Druids for a little while. It all works because the music is truly PRIMORDIAL. It transcends all earthly cultures and realms.

DRUID DANCE – Constantine-related Music
Interesting how intricately everything is connected between the earthly and spirit realms. Yesterday was the fourth anniversary of my first revelation about my lifetime as the Roman Emperor Constantine. Yesterday was also the third anniversary of my last recording of the music which is somehow associated with that incarnation – “In the Hall of the Mountain King” by Edward Grieg.
This tune first came to me in a dream on Aug 9, 2011 which was related to Constantine (see Constantine Trail of Tears). At the time, I had no idea what it was. So I just recorded the first few bars and then solicited help from my musically-educated friends. Here’s that first recording of it…
