The Sun and the Serpent & Symphonies in Stone

Here’s a reet treet for you….

I’ve only just been made aware of this. The lovely Hamish Miller, who I’ve mentioned once, twice, maybe more, on the Song of Ffraed blogs, and his surveying and writing partner, Paul Broadhurst in a short film of them dowsing the Michael and Mary sacred flows across England.

Michael and Mary are different Ddraig’s to Ffraed, they are a pair and follow the Beltane and Lughnasadh sunrise line. Though both of these sacred times, and many more,  are well and anciently acknowledged in Her presence, Ffraed is more chalice-like, both ends dipping into the sacred waters of St. Bride’s Bay (Bae San Ffraed), and She is solitary. Nevertheless there are strong similarities and I think you’ll enjoy seeing something of what it has been like for me and my companions on the Ffraed Project.

THE SUN AND THE SERPENT was the title of the classic bestselling book on Earth Mysteries by Paul Broadhurst and Hamish Miller that was first published in 1989. This video has been created from an early recording of a 1991 channel 4 TV documentary that follows their journey of discovery through the British landscape, its mythology, ancient sites, and mysteries.


The second item is an article that has relevance for us too. I’ve mentioned previously, the musical (or frequency) scores that seem to be composed in the patterning of Ffraed in sites along Her.

A friend (who I’ve now lost touch with) who has investigated and experimented with film and acoustics in prehistoric structures and such, several years back explained to me at Pentre Ifan dream chamber how the gaps and placements of stones make ‘music’ – and he showed me one of the ‘keys’ in the process to opening the portal there.
Y Ddraig Ffraed’s patterning suggests musical scores at a number of the sites She blesses and I’m hoping one day that we might meet again, and that he will bring his instruments and equipment to record what is there.
I’ve just come across this article, and it reminded me of the above:

Smithsonian Magazine: Stonehenge remains profoundly mysterious. We still aren’t certain who built it, or why they aligned its geometry with the summer solstice, or brought the smaller stones from 180 miles away, or what range of purposes it served. But every year scientists learn more about the great stone enigma on Salisbury Plain. Most recently, a team from the University of Salford, in Manchester, and English Heritage, the charitable trust that manages Stonehenge, made a breakthrough about the monument’s acoustical wonders.

What did Stonehenge sound like?
