Whatever names they take today, many of our most venerable calendar dates have their origins in pre-Christian observances, often marking key points in the agricultural year when planting began or harvesting was completed. Songs, games, stories and rites often formed an essential part of these occasions, and their echoes reach us today though the din of the ages, with hidden meanings and garbled messages. Our Calendar Customs series explores this world of symbolism and ritual sonically, via research and artistic reinterpretation. 'Crown of Light' is the fourth instalment in the series and focuses on traditions associated with midsummer.
