Guiding Star (Download License)

This new setting of the Christmas/Epiphany words,
“As with gladness, men of old did the guiding star behold”
seeks to emphasize the joyful nature of the visit of the Magi to the Christ child. Set in a lively 7/8 time, it is mainly in four parts (SATB), although the 3rd verse, “As they offered gifts most rare” is for men’s voices only (TTBB). There is also a quieter, more meditative section, reflecting the words of verse 4, “Holy Jesus, every day…”
The accompaniment is for piano or organ, and the piece may be purchased in printed form or as a digital download via An orchestration will also be available soon.
