Star of the East – Choral Score (In Print)

Mixed Choir (SATB)

This is a new setting of Reginald Heber’s Epiphany poem, Brightest and Best of the Sons of the Morning. It was written for the Boys’ Choir of the Nidaros Cathedral in Trondheim, Norway, and received its first performances in December 2012 in Oslo and Trondheim.

It is reflective in character, underlining the beauty of the poetry:

‘Say, shall we yield Him, in costly devotion,
Odors of Edom and offerings divine?
Gems of the mountain and pearls of the ocean,
Myrrh from the forest, or gold from the mine?’

The sound file has recorded in the magnificent Nidaros Cathedral, with a light orchestral accompaniment.

An orchestration is available from the composer if required.


(Note: 8-copy minimum purchase for most choral titles)
