Two more films:

Penglaz is the town 'Obby 'Oss of Penzance, Cornwall UK. Appearing at Midsummer (Golowan) and at Midwinter (Montol) she represents the seasonal death & rebirth energies. She is led by the 'Teazer' known locally as The Bucca -- a Cornish Pagan deity of light and dark aspect who presides over these seasonal energies being at Midsummer Bucca Gwidder (the white god) and at Midwinter Bucca Dhu (the black god). A tradition surrounded in secrecy and jealously guarded by the Penzance folk.

nice links spinney! Thanks for this :)
"My church is not of silver and gold,
Its glory lies beyond judgement of souls
The commandments are of consolation & warmth
You know our sacred dream won't fail
The sanctury tender and so frail
The sacrament of love
The sacrament of warmth is true
The sacrament is you"
