Overall Meaning

The song "Dance of the Druids" by Bear McCreary is a haunting and mystical tribute to ancient Celtic culture. In the Gaelic lyrics, the singer addresses various celestial bodies and refers to them as kings, using the Gaelic word "Righ" which means "king." The first verse addresses the moon, "A Righ na gile" meaning "Oh king of the bright moon," and the sun, "A Righ na greine" meaning "Oh king of the sun," as well as the stars, "A Righ na rinne" meaning "Oh king of the stars." The second verse repeats these three kings and adds "A Righ na reula" meaning "Oh king of the constellations."
