I am looking forward to seeing what music is included in the soundtrack of this game. In the meantime, and also to whet the appetite, here is The Druids performing a famous Cavalier song "When the King Enjoys His Own Again."

Lyrics:
What booker can prognosticate? or speak of our kingdom's present state?
I think myself to be as wise as he that looks most in the skies.
My skill goes beyond the depths of the pond or river in the greatest rain;
By which I can tell that all things will be well when the king comes home in peace again.

There's no astrologer, says I, can search more deep in this than I
To give you a reason from the stars what causes peace or civil wars.
The man in the moon may wear out his shoone in running after Charles' wain,
But all to no end, for the times they will mend when the king comes home in peace again.

Though for a time you may see Whitehall with cobwebs hanging over all
Instead of silk and silver brave as formerly it used to have;
And in every room the sweet perfume, delightful for that princely train,
To which you shall see when the time it shall be that the king comes home in peace again.

Till then upon Ararat's Hill my hopes shall cast her anchor still
Until I see some peaceful dove bring home the branch which I do love.
Still will I wait till the waters abate which must disturb my troubled brain,
For I'll never rejoice till I hear that voice that the king comes home in peace again.
