Which prog music you recommend me that is related to faeries and goblins?

I like Gryphon early albums, Malicorne and Faun. Also some stuff from Jethro Tull, Pete Sinfield's "The Piper". Also Tangerine Dream's "Legend". 

 I'd like to find more "faerie" music of this kind, but I don't dig New Age stuff. I'm looking for a more traditional / folk oriented music and atmospheric prog. Any thoughts?

Queen II has a few Faerie related tracks on it, and is a fantastic album in general. If you're looking for folk/traditional stuff, you might want to check out Steeleye Span.

Thanks, I know all of these, great music btw! But I was thinking more of music that culturally and musically has to do with the faerie world or have a similar atmosphere, instead of any songs with lyrics that just mention faeries. Comus "Diane" it's a good one that i didn't know!

Not sure if this is what you're looking for, but Neige of Alcest has described his work as a musical adaptation of a "fairy land" he fantasized about as a child. His latest album  Écailles de Lune is definately worth checking out regardless of whether it fits the category of faerie related prog.

I believe Bo Hannson might have something. Check out Greg Walker's website Synphonic Music. Also check and see if "The Enid" have any titles.

 I'd suggest 'Faerie Symphony' by Tom Newman - very Oldfieldish, if that's your thing, and nicely atmospheric.

 Stretching the definition a bit, there's a nice ambitious piece called 'All in the golden afternoon' by a rock composer called Ian Neal - it's based in his reflections on the 'Alice' books, rather than traditional faerie lore.

Aerie Faerie Nonsense by the Enid is rather good (symphonic prog)
but devoid of any tiny fictional beings I'm afraid Approve

Comus would be a good idea, kind of dark whimsical stuff.
