On June 15th, 1215, King John of England signed the Magna Carta at Runnymede (near Windsor in South England). The Magna Carta is a sort of bill of rights for English nobles, though the common man is mentioned as well. It is considered to be the basis for constitutional government in England, and some ideas in the United States Constitution descend from the Magna Carta.
This song in a medieval Celtic style, in keeping with the theme and period. It begins with an acoustic guitar, and builds into a full Celtic groove, with lots of drums. It's very dramatic and neat to just listen to! (from Music K-8, Vol. 25, No. 5)
