Walpurgis Day

Walpurgis Day (May Day).
Music (in the temple of silence).
Saint Walpurga (aka Walpurgis etc) was an abbotess nun who tried to christianize the pagan germans and the festival of May Day (widely known after her),...she ended up a virtual goddess of the grain (the new corn dolly), but has been sucessful in prude-ifiying the notorious druid orgy. And so it rightfully bears her name as a part of the struggle and history of interactions.
(in what way was it not Walpurgis' Night?)
She helped heal rabies and the oil from her bones had curative powers (like saint Catherines).
