    The Avebury Circles in Wiltshire (England) are even more spectacular than Stonehenge. Michael Brand's piece imagines a misty dawn as the sun rises over the shaped stones, followed by a robed ceremony, a sacrifice and finally a dance.

    Program Notes
    The Avebury Circles in Wiltshire (England) are even more spectacular than Stonehenge. They are thought to date from the same time. Who knows what they symbolized or what rituals were performed there? Michael Brand's piece imagines a misty dawn as the sun rises over the shaped stones, followed by a robed ceremony, a sacrifice and finally a dance.
