This delightfully charming piece plays off of the familiar children's song Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star and is a fantastic opportunity for young children to be introduced to new musical material based on a foundation with which they are already comfortable. Using detatched, staccato techniques in the accompaniment and vocals, Sparkling Stars, Shining in the Night tells the story of the star leading the Wise Men to the baby Jesus in a fun and upbeat way. Children will adore this song!
