The Aradia chant is a prayer to Aradia, daughter of Diana, Goddess of the Moon and hunt. Bingham said he wanted to paint a picture of a beautiful witch on a moonlit night, calling the Goddess to her, to reveal the mystery, to then be joined by her coven ending in the raising of energy acting as a transitional piece between Moon She Rises and Drawing Down the Moon.

The original piece is longer than the one on the recording - the second half of the chant has a 5/4 rhythm sung against a 4/4 counter point, that after listening clearly became one of those pieces that Bingham skipped over after the listening. He said about the piece "I think it would be wonderfully dramatic in ritual. I translated it into Latin after conferring with my classically trained brother, just to give it a feeling of something old, that might have happened some moonlit night 3000 years ago. "
